On 06/04/2022, at approximately 1235 hours, I, Deputy D. Sweat was dispatched to [200 BLOCK] Red Fox Run in reference to aggravated assault complaint.

Upon my arrival on scene, I met with victim, [VICTIM #1] and questioned her about the incident. [VICTIM #1] advised that she and offender, Jalen Manuel, the father of one of her children ([REDACTED BY AGENCY]), were at [200 BLOCK] Red Fox Run and watched a movie.

[VICTIM #1] advised that Jalen became angry when the other male called her phone. [VICTIM #1] advised that Jalen then yelled and cursed at her.

[VICTIM #1] advised that an unknown female sent a text message to Jalen and when she asked him about the female, Jalen became angrier and and advised that he would leave with [REDACTED BY AGENCY]. [VICTIM #1] advised that Jalen then pulled a knife from his pocket and opened the knife.
