On Monday 4-10-23, I (Deputy C Medina), was dispatched to Vineville Ave and Belvedere Dr in reference to traffic accident. I met with [VICTIM #1]. She stated she broke up with her boyfriend (suspect), Arthur Freeman, on Friday (4-7-23) after she felt he was trying to “control” her. They have only been dating for 5 months. She stated she was off work and went out for a night of fun and he did not like the fact that she went out. She broke with him that night.
Ms. [VICTIM #1] stated she did not have any contact with suspect Saturday or Sunday. She stated he began calling her on Monday. She ignored him and blocked his number. Ms. [VICTIM #1] then stated that her kids got home sometime in the afternoon. One of her kids was not feeling well. She went out to get medicine for her sick child.
Ms. [VICTIM #1] stated she was at the intersection of Belvedere Dr and Vineville. A white pick-up truck made a left turn onto Belvedere Dr and struck her head on. She backed up her vehicle, the truck again struck her vehicle. She was able to identify the driver as Arthur Freeman. She stated that he told her he wanted to talk. She drove off.
The incident happened around 3:15pm. She was able to make contact with a chiropractor office ([REDACTED] Chiropractor) nearby. The chiropractor office video surveillance was able to capture the incident on a ring camera. Ms. [VICTIM #1] was able to shop me video footage of incident. I observed a white pick-up truck ramming into Ms. [VICTIM #1] vehicle head-on. Ms. [VICTIM #1] is seen backing up her vehicle and pick-up truck rams Ms. [VICTIM #1] vehicle again.
Ms. [VICTIM #1] stated she does not know who the pick-up truck belongs to, because that is not the vehicle that the Arthur Freeman normally drives. I will seek warrants out for Arthur Freeman for Aggravated Assault by Motor Vehicle. I referred Ms. [VICTIM #1] to Crisis Safe House and gave her information on how to obtain a TPO.
