On May 7th, Officer Adam Price arrived at 1643 Barrywood Circle East and made contact with the defendant, Jessica Duty, and the victim about a domestic in progress. The victim told the police that he and the victim began arguing about past events while drinking and watching television. Duty started striking him in the forehead with his phone so he poured out the rest of the alcohol, he advised.
She then began to punch him in the chest and head then pushed him down and began choking him, he said. Officer Price observed several abrasions on the victim’s face with a swollen spot on his left side as well as bruising on his neck consistent with being choked. There was blood in the cracks of the phone as well, per report. Duty and the victim have a domestic history from April 21st, 2020 where Duty was determined the aggressor.
