30-year-old Antwon Freeman was charged with domestic assault after breaking into his grandmother’s home and strangling her when she told him to leave.
On September 2nd, Shelby County Police Officer Holmes was dispatched to a domestic assault call located at 1006 Rayner Street. Upon arrival, Officer Holmes spoke to Beverly Williams who advised her grandson, Antwon Freeman, had been evicted from the home about a week prior. Beverly advised police that when she returned home after a beauty shop appointment she found Antwon inside the residence. She asked Antwon how he got into the house, and he admitted that he broke into the residence. When Beverly told him to leave the property, he refused to leave, shoved her, and then began to strangle her.
Beverly reported that Antwon had choked her several times prior to this incident, and she was afraid for her life. Her other grandson, Rodercus Freeman, informed Officer Holmes he witnessed his brother attack their grandmother and that he had become increasingly more violent toward her. Sergeant Davis was called in by request of Antwon after he requested a supervisor because he felt that he was being wrongfully arrested.
Antwon Freeman was arrested and charged with domestic assault. His bond was set at $2,500.
