Naked Aggression

A fight between a woman and her ex-boyfriend went viral. At midnight on Saturday, April 5, a 23-year-old woman got into a dispute with her ex-boyfriend as she was about to enter her apartment on Water Street. They were arguing, when he grabbed her cell phone and sent out a naked photo of her to all the contacts stored in the phone's memory. He then threw down the phone, pushed her into the apartment, and threw her down, causing a laceration to her right foot. She refused medical attention, and her ex-boyfriend fled the scene.

Nothing Taken!
