Domestic incident leads to burglary and battery allegations

A Pine Bluff man was arrested Thursday after he allegedly kicked open the door of a house and struck his former girlfriend.

Lorenzo Kellon, 21, and the alleged victim had broken up about a month ago and Kellon did not live at the residence, Detective Michael Roberts said in a probable cause affidavit.

The incident was reported in the 1700 block of East Circle Drive at 8:30 a.m. The alleged victim said Kellon had come to the house and the two argued, then the disagreement became physical when Kellon allegedly pushed her into a wall before leaving.

Roberts said the alleged victim told police Kellon left but then kicked the door open when she tried to lock it, and struck her several times in the face.

Police reported seeing scratches on the woman’s face and a hole in the wall of the residence.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $25,000 bond for Kellon on Friday after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with residential burglary and third-degree domestic battery.

Judge Kearney also ordered Kellon to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.
