Kanteno Shelton assaults girlfriend after learning she was planning to kick him out

22-year-old Kanteno Deshaun Shelton had a domestic incident with his girlfriend, Jyome Dixon, at her Kelly Lane apartment on the night of May 7th. Upon arrival, officers spoke with Dixon, who stated she had been trying to leave all day, but Shelton would not let go. Dixon stated this is because he found paperwork in her car that had to do with making him leave the unit. Dixon stated that this made Shelton upset, and when she asked him for her car keys, he refused to give them to her. Then, Dixon tried walking out of the apartment. Shelton prevented her from leaving by wrapping his arms around her waist, squeezing her to the point where she had to push him to get free. Dixon added that when she went to the bedroom, he followed her and wanted to talk, but she told him she did not want to. Shelton responded by pushing her onto the bed, pinning her down, and pulling her hair. Dixon said he took her phone and changed the password after she tried to call 911.

When officers spoke with Shelton, he told them that he and Dixon’s altercation was strictly verbal, adding that she was mad about him sleeping all day. During their interaction, Shelton complained about his shoulder being out of its socket. He told officers it happened when he got upset and placed his arms over his head. Shelton was deemed the primary aggressor and was taken into custody for domestic assault and interference with an emergency call on May 8th.
