An Albany Man Gets Arrested After He Punched His Girlfriend In The Face
Saturday morning about 9:00 A.M., a woman called Albany Police because she allegedly found her ex-boyfriend hiding in a closet in her apartment.
From a story in the Times Union, when the police got there, they found 28-year-old Tristan Jenkins in a storage closet in the basement of the Third Street apartment. That’s when Jenkins decided to make a break from the situation and pushed the officer out of the way. He then punched his ex-girlfriend in the face and knocked down the landlord of the building when he was escaping. This resulted in a foot chase with the police through some backyards and ending up on Terminal Street.
It didn’t end there. That’s when Jenkins pushed the police out of the way when they tried to put him in the police car. They finally caught up to Jenkins a short time later on Livingston Avenue and took him into custody where they charged Jenkins with a laundry list of charges including resisting arrest, third degree assault and second degree burglary.
