DECATUR , Ill., Aug. 4 (UPI) -- An Illinois man was booked on charges of attempted murder and aggravated domestic battery after he allegedly attacked his roommate because she chowed down on his Chips Ahoy cookies for breakfast.

Allen Hall is accused of attacking his 49-year-old female roommate over three cookies.

According to the alleged victim, the 23-year-old began pounding on the bathroom door after he noticed the missing baked goods. When Hall allegedly said he was going to kill her, she thought he was kidding.

She told him: "If you are going to kill me then go ahead," the Decatur Herald & Review reported.

The suspect wasn't joking around.

"Allen grabbed her around the throat with both of his hands and threw her down into the tub," according to an affidavit. "She hit the back of her head on the tub and this caused a knot on her head."

He then strangled her to the point where she was "having difficulty breathing." Had her husband and landlady not arrived on the scene, things could have been much worse.

Hall is set to be arraigned later this week.
