Man accused of punching, strangling girlfriend during alleged dispute about breakfast
MUNCIE, Ind. (Jan. 7, 2016)— A Muncie man was arrested on several charges after a woman claimed he beat her up over a dispute about breakfast.
Breion Donte Thomas, 25, was preliminarily charged with strangulation, criminal confinement, battery with injury and interference with reporting a crime.
Officers responded to a home on West Bethel Avenue in reference to a possible domestic dispute. When they arrived, the victim said Thomas became angry with her because she told him she wanted waffles after he made her pancakes for breakfast.
According to the police report, the victim told police Thomas pushed her around, punched her several times in the back with a closed fist and threw her onto a bed and held her down to prevent her from leaving. The woman also told officers Thomas strangled her with her shirt so that she couldn’t breathe.
The woman said she attempted to call 911, but Thomas reportedly took her phone and shut it off. Thomas had fled the residence by the time officers arrived to the scene.
