A 24-year-old man was arrested in Chinatown on Friday after admitting to punching his ex-girlfriend after seeing her with another man.
Felix Muna Kileleman was charged with assault and battery, aggravated assault and battery, criminal mischief and disturbing the peace.
He appeared before Superior Court Associate Judge Wesley Bogdan on Monday in the custody of the Department of Corrections.
The judge imposed a $20,000 cash bail on Kileleman who was represented by Assistant Public Defender Nancy Domisnki. Assistant Attorney General Frieda Demapan appeared for the government.
According to court documents Kileleman was previously convicted of involuntary manslaughter and burglary.
The victim said she was beaten up by Kileleman. According to the police, the victim had a black eye, swelling on her left facial area, and her lips were swollen and had a cut.
She told police that on Wednesday evening, she had a drink with a male friend at a hotel in Garapan. Afterward, her friend volunteered to walk her home. On their way to her home, they ran into her ex-boyfriend, Kilelman, on Garapan Street.
The victim said she heard her friend tell Kileleman that he “didn’t want any problems” and left.
She then continued walking back to her apartment with Kileleman following her. She said he was visibly upset and was mumbling.
When she saw a woman standing in front of a restaurant, she told the woman to call the police, but this made Kileleman more upset, the victim said. He threw her cellphone on the ground and broke it, she added.
She said she was about to run but Kileleman grabbed her hair and dragged her down to the pavement. She said Kileleman turned her head then grabbed her hair again and punched her face multiple times.
The victim told police that she could not recall how many times the defendant punched her, but added that she was about to pass out at one point.
She said when he finally let her go he told her, “That’s what you want?” Kileleman also said he would look for her male friend and beat him up, the victim said.
At the Criminal Investigation Bureau office, Kileleman told the police he knew what he did was wrong, and confessed that he did it out of anger.
Kileleman said he held the victim’s right shoulder with his left hand and punched her face “about three times.”
