JAMES CITY COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — A man is facing charges after police say he tried to throw a woman off a second-story balcony at her James City County home.

Police said the woman reported that Mark Prather arrived at her home in the Kingsmill area of the county “uninvited and intoxicated” on Sunday, May 26.

Friends, family members and children were reportedly present at the time.

Police said a friend tried to stop Prather, but he was still able to enter the home. The woman went upstairs to “tend to the children” because of Prather’s “intoxicated state.

Prather, 38, went upstairs and grabbed the woman by the bottom of her legs and tried to throw her off the balcony. The woman was able to grab the railing to keep herself from falling, police said.

Police arrested Prather two days later and was charged with attempted murder and domestic assault.

A booking photo for Prather was not immediately available.
