The officer was flagged down in the parking lot by Porshia Crowell, Dominisha Mcbee, and Lela Crowell. Tremaine Stem was not present when police arrived. Dominisha told police she had a verbal argument with Stem on the phone, after which he showed up to Porshia’s residence at 2557 26th Avenue North where Dominisha was hanging out. Porshia told the officer she had recently called her cousin, who came to the apartment. Lela told the officer that when she arrived, Stem forcibly pushed past her into the apartment as she was opening the door. He proceeded to confront Dominisha and Porshia, starting a verbal argument that led Stem to punch Dominisha in the face.
The three women said that Stem fled after threw the punch. The officer observed swelling around Dominisha’s right eye. Porshia told the officer that Stem never had access to her apartment and did not have consent to enter. While the officer was at the scene where the incident took place Stem called Dominisha on the phone and threatened her. She put the phone on speaker and the officer overheard him make the following statements: “You mad you got your ass beat,” Your blood is still on my clothes, ho,” I’m gonna shoot you and your mama,” and “I’m gonna shoot the police too.” Dominisha and the officer both interpreted these statements as threats made against her physical safety. The officer determined Stem unlawfully entered the apartment and was the primary aggressor of the assault.
