Police were called to a report of a domestic disturbance in the 2000 block of East 17th Street on Tuesday morning, and found a 24-year-old Muncie woman weeping, and the front door of her home damaged.
The woman said Quentin Jamal Reed, 34, kicked in the door about 6:30 a.m., broke a lamp and kicked her in the stomach.
His accuser — who was taken by ambulance to IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital after complaining of stomach pains — also said Reed had stolen her 3-month-old puppy, which he maintained was his.
The woman said about 12:30 a.m., she had sent Reed’s cellphone a photograph that showed her holding a pregnancy test with the caption, “We’re with child.”
A second photo sent to Reed showed “a close-up picture of a positive pregnancy test,” an affidavit said.
Hard to believe that in this day and age a positive pregnancy test could spark that kind of a reaction!
