30-year-old Elic Page was jailed on March 3rd for assaulting his ex-boyfriend during an argument on Shurgard Way. Nathaniel Browning stated that he was trying to remove his property from Elic’s apartment when Elic put his hands on him and wouldn’t let him leave. Nathaniel explained that he was moving out of the apartment because he and Elic broke up. Nathaniel stated that Elic forced him onto the bed. When Nathaniel tried to leave the apartment, Elic blocked the door with his body, preventing Nathaniel from leaving. Officers reviewed video footage revealing Nathaniel telling Elic he just wanted to get his things and leave. Then, the footage showed Elic forcing Nathaniel back and slamming the front door shut.
According to Elic, he only made physical contact with Nathaniel when he tried to hug him. A witness corroborated Nathaniel’s story by stating that Elic grabbed him several times and even pinned him against the wall. The witness had multiple videos on her phone confirming Nathaniel’s story. Nathaniel later changed his story and stated that Elic never threatened or assaulted him. Elic was taken into custody and transported to booking.
