Creed III and Kang actor, Jonathan Majors, was arrested by authorities in New York after reportedly assaulting an unnamed woman. Let’s dive deeper and try to know what really happened.

What really happened?

According to the police, they received a 911 emergency call from an apartment in Chelsea, Manhattan, New York City on March 25 at around 11 am. After responding to the call, the cops found out that a 33-year-old male (Jonathan Majors) allegedly assaulted a 30-year-old female tenant following a dispute. According to TMZ, the woman was Majors’ girlfriend. The victim’s name was not shared with the public for safety purposes.

“A preliminary investigation determined that a 33-year-old male was involved in a domestic dispute with a 30-year-old female,” according to a statement from the Deputy Commissioner of Public Information. “The victim informed police she was assaulted. Officers placed the 33-year-old male into custody without incident. The victim sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was removed to an area hospital in stable condition.”

The unnamed woman accused Majors of assault which included strangulation and harassment that led to her being hospitalized. TMZ also revealed that sources told them the altercation between the two began when the victim confronted Majors for allegedly texting other women. When she tried to take a look at the 33-year-old actor’s phone, Majors got extremely mad. He then grabbed her by the neck, strangled her, and continuously slapped her. She then reported the incident to the cops and Majors was arrested later on. However, Jonathan Majors’ camp said that “He has done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”
