The suspect was from a rural address, but had attended Brandon to search for his ex-girlfriend. He found her at the residence of another male by following her information on Snap Map, which is a location sharing feature on the Snapchat app.

The resident opened the door to speak with the suspect, and the suspect soon refused to leave the residence when told to. The suspect proceeded to assault the other male by choking him, and punching him.

The investigation led police to the discovery of the suspect’s identity and whereabouts. On November 7, 2019, the 21-year-old male suspect turned himself into police. He was arrested and will appear in court on January 2, 2020 on charges of Unlawfully in a Dwelling, Assault, and Choking to Overcome Resistance.
