SALEM, N.H. — A Massachusetts man has been accused of trying to strangle a woman at a New Hampshire hotel and then leading police on a chase.

Thirty-eight-year-old Gerald Fraize of Lowell, Mass., is accused of attacking the woman at the La Quinta Inn in Salem on March 23. When police arrived, they saw a car described as Fraize’s leaving.
