BURLINGTON (AP) - Vermont police are looking for a man accused of trying to strangle a woman in Burlington.

Police say 34-year-old David Godin is being charged with attempted homicide, burglary, criminal mischief and interfering with access to emergency services. He was last seen early Saturday morning, when neighbors say he forced his way into the victim's apartment.

She wasn't home at the time, but police say Godin was at the apartment twice the night before. They say he kicked in the door the first time, and during the second incident, tried to strangle the woman and took her phone so she couldn't call for help.

Police say Godin is considered a danger to the victim but not to the general public.
