Fawwas Alghandi assaults boyfriend, threatens him with knife
26-year-old Fawwaz Alghandi had a domestic incident with his boyfriend, Johnny Lee Jenkins, on April 23rd. When officers arrived, they spoke with Jenkins, who stated Alghandi had woken him up, jumping on him while he was lying down. He said after he pushed and punched him to get him to stop, Alghandi became angry and pinned him to the bed. Jenkins said he wrestled Alghandi off and started to pack his belongings. Then, as he started walking out the door, Alghandi tried to grab a vape from his hands, so he pushed him away. Jenkins stated that Alghandi returned, holding a knife with a sheath covering, and started swinging it at him, hitting him on the right side of his temple with the knife handle. When officers spoke with Alghandi, he told them that he and Jenkins had a verbal altercation, which escalated when Jenkins got aggressive and started punching and kicking him in the head. He admitted to hitting him with the bottom end of the knife. The landlord, a witness, told officers that she heard the commotion and saw Alghandi jumping on Jenkins. Alghandi was deemed the primary aggressor and was taken into custody for aggravated assault.
