WYANDOTTE – A 44-year-old resident with a history of heavy drinking and domestic service calls was arrested recently after another evening of poor decision making.
Officers were dispatched to the 300 block of Bondie at about 5 a.m. June 26 to investigate a possible domestic assault in progress. Upon arrival, several apartment tenants advised officers of an assault in a specific apartment.
A 44-year-old woman met officers at her apartment and said she was assaulted by her ex-boyfriend, who was sitting on the couch inside the apartment.
Officers noticed the woman’s neck was red and slightly scratched, and she had streaks of blood on her face and neck, as well as a bruise on her right elbow.
The woman told officers her ex-boyfriend was at her job drinking and harassing her before staff members escorted him out of the building.
She was at her apartment with two male friends after work and said her ex-boyfriend kept calling and harassing her. He later showed up outside the building and argued with her. He then got through the main security door and kicked in her apartment door to find the woman and two men sitting inside.
The man got angry and accused his ex-girlfriend of dating one of the two men. He then began to assault her before one of the visiting men stepped up to defend her.
The woman’s defender fled the area prior to officers’ arrival, but the ex-boyfriend had suffered a bloody lip, nose and several minor scratches during the fight.
The third man, a 30-year-old resident, said the ex-boyfriend broke into the apartment without permission and began assaulting the woman before just before the fight occurred.
Police said the ex-boyfriend was highly intoxicated at the time of the incident, and that the ex-girlfriend had called and text messaged him to come over. He also said he was let into the building and invited into the apartment.
He told police he then was jumped by the woman and her two male friends.
The man was arrested for domestic violence and breaking and entering.
