The female told police that she and her fiancé, 21-year-old Alexzondrea Kowitzhad had gotten into a verbal altercation. The altercation escalated when Kowitzhad broke a part of their bed which belonged to the victim’s mother. She told her to apologize to her mother which she did. 

Upon coming back downstairs to the bedroom, the female told Alexzondrea that she would be pawning her PlayStation to compensate her mother for the broken bed. The two continued to argue and Kowitzhad shoved the victim and then hit the victim in the face. 

The victim told police she believed she had suffered a broken nose. 

The victim signed a domestic battery affidavit and Kowitzhad was detained on a charge of domestic battery in the presence of a minor. 

The victim’s 5-year-old daughter was in the home when the incident occurred.
