TEANECK — A Farleigh Dickinson student faces assault and terroristic threat charges after police found a loaded weapon in his dorm during an investigation into the assault of a woman.

Teaneck police said a woman on Monday reported two incidents with Kawan Joseph, 21, of Brooklyn, that happened Dec. 6 and on Jan. 3 in her dorm on River Road.

During the December encounter, she said Joseph grabbed her arm, pinned her down and then choked her, the woman told police. When she tried to escape, Jospeh stopped her from leaving for a period of time.

She told police that in January the two got into an argument during which Joseph grabbed her arms, shook her and pinned her against a wall.
