MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) - A North Carolina man was arrested Thursday morning for assaulting his wife after finding her in a Myrtle Beach hotel room "entertaining" another man, a Myrtle Beach police report said.

According to the report, Erik Brandon Jenkins, 37, of Wilmington tried to strangle his wife, leaving red scratches and marks on her neck and a bloody lip.

Jenkins' wife told police she and Jenkins got into an argument after being caught "entertaining" another man.  She said Jenkins told her recently that she needed to start making some money.

Jenkins became upset because his wife did not tell him first, the report said.

Jenkins was arrested and later charged with criminal domestic violence.
