Woonsocket police said they arrested a man accused of beating his wife -- who's being treated for cancer -- after celebrating her birthday.

The Call reported that 40-year-old David Leduc was charged with domestic assault by strangulation, domestic felony assault, domestic disorderly conduct, and failure to relinquish a telephone. Leduc was being held at the ACI.

Police said the woman suffered brain bleeding and broken ribs.

Police said the couple went to Providence on Saturday night to celebrate her birthday, but she left him in the city after an argument.

They said Leduc returned to their apartment, where he allegedly punched and choked her.

Police said the woman told them Leduc took her phone so she couldn't call for help.
