Share

A man who was on probation for assault and battery-domestic violence was arrested anew for the same offense.

Felix Muña Kileleman Jr., 26, was arrested again for assault and battery-domestic violence after allegedly beating his girlfriend in front of their 6-year-old child over a dispute about going out to a bar.

Kileleman, through Office of the Public Defender’s Karie Comstock, waived his preliminary hearing last Thursday. He will be arraigned on July 15.

According to court information, Department of Public Safety officers responded to a disturbance at the Grandvrio apartment located in central Garapan on July 1 at 10:22pm.

At the scene, officers met with Kileleman’s girlfriend, who reported that she was assaulted by her boyfriend, Kileleman. Police said the victim had messy hair and red eyes.

The victim told police that she, Kileleman, and their 6-year-old daughter had just arrived home from the Liberation Day carnival at around 9pm that night.

Kileleman wanted to get a babysitter so he and the victim could go out to a bar but she did not want to go. Kileleman and the victim got into an argument and she told him to leave. As Kileleman was leaving, the victim said she tried to push the door shut but was stopped by Kileleman.

Kileleman allegedly pushed the door open and, with both hands, shoved the victim backwards. The victim told police that Kileleman pulled her hair, punched her in the head and face, and choked her.

The victim said their 6-year-old daughter saw the scene and screamed at Kileleman to stop. Police then contacted the Division of Youth Services to interview the child.

The victim stated that Kileleman might still be on probation for assaulting her back in 2018.

Court documents confirmed that Kileleman pleaded guilty to count one assault and battery-domestic violence back in 2018.

The case is being handled by Superior Court Associate Judge Kenneth Govendo.
