BETHEL ACRES, Oklahoma -

A man is in Pottawatomie County jail Tuesday after standoff with law enforcement. 

John Joseph Quinter, 44, was arrested on an assault and battery by strangulation complaint. He is accused of attacking a woman he doesn't know.

Quinter could be facing more legal trouble.

“I am in shock,” said Daisy Holder, the victim of Monday night’s attack. “I am scared, and I don't know how long it’s going to be until I recover.”

Holder’s face and eyes were notably red and bloodshot from her ordeal. She came back to the scene of her attack just hours after being released from the hospital.

Holder said she went to 15 Angie Lane with a friend, looking for some help in getting a computer charger for her boyfriend. She said her friend knew Quinter, but she did not.  When she went inside to use the bathroom and then came out things got out of hand.

“Next thing I know, she's asking him for gas money, and I was going over to her vehicle and he came up behind me and he strangled me,” Holder said.

Holder said that's when she blacked out and later woke up at the hospital. Holder doesn't know why Quinter attacked her.

Court documents state he grabbed her around the neck and told her that she was not going anywhere because she owed him money. Something she said is impossible since she had never met him before.

The sheriff said dispatchers had to give her friend directions on how to give her CPR until help could arrive, but there was also another concern.

“The people on the scene said that the suspect was armed and in and out of his house and walking around the premises,” Pottawatomie County Sheriff Mike Booth said.

The district attorney’s task force was called out, as was the SWAT team, OHP and other law enforcement agencies and a standoff ensued. After using a robot to search the scene, they deployed tear gas inside the home and got Quinter to surrender.

“He kept saying he was stuck and needed help,“ Booth said.

Inside the home, they found items that could be used to make explosives and outside they found this AR 15 lying along the fence.

Officers also knew this was the same house where a deadly shooting had taken place on Saturday. Robert Dale Almon is the man who was shot and killed. He had been staying with Quinter inside this home, and Quinter admitted to shooting him.

“He was definitely there. He was definitely the shooter,” Booth said.

Right now, the investigation into the deadly shooting is still ongoing.

Pottawatomie County District Attorney Richard Smothermon said charges in the homicide could be filed as early as next week.

Quinter told investigators he shot Almon in self-defense but evidence collected at the scene disputes that, Smothermon said.

Quinter is being held on a $50,000 bond.
