ITHACA, N.Y. – An Ithaca man is facing several charges after a domestic dispute which left a victim with multiple minor injuries, police say.
Ithaca Police arrested Jordan J. Majors, 22, last Monday after a woman reported that he entered her home and verbally and physically assaulted her two nights before.
Police say Majors entered the woman’s home at 2 a.m. and stayed there after being asked to leave several times. The victim, who had a restraining order against Majors which was issued in February, said he verbally abused her before grabbing and physically attacking her.
Court records state Majors held the victim down by her arms and caused several minor injuries to her arms and face. While attempting to call 911, police say Majors took the victim’s phone from her twice.
Majors has been charged with second-degree burglary, third-degree assault, second-degree unlawful imprisonment, fourth-degree criminal mischief, aggravated criminal contempt, and criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation.
Majors is scheduled for a preliminary hearing at Ithaca City Court on April 13.
