Maricopa Police arrested Tommy Streets on Feb. 9 on a charge of aggravated domestic violence assault by strangulation.
According to an MPD probable cause statement, Streets was apparently breaking up with his girlfriend for “not coming home the night prior.” He had packed up her belongings and told her she could come get them, according to the report.
The woman reported to police she picked up her belongings but noticed her PlayStation 4 was not there. She asked Streets for the PlayStation and tried to go into the house to get it. She told police he “pushed her out of the doorway and wrapped his arm around her neck from behind,” according to the probable cause statement.
Once free, she left and called police. Officers noted that the woman had red abrasions on both sides of her neck and the marks appeared new.
Streets told officers he placed her items outside and when she tried to enter his residence, he closed the door to prevent her from entering the house. He said there was no physical altercation between them and that there was no PlayStation in the residence, according to the probable cause statement.
Due to the physical marking on the woman’s neck, Streets was arrested. The officer reported they believed Streets caused injury to the woman, giving them probable cause for the arrest.
