21-year-old Jeremy Mitchell told his ex-girlfriend she would die after breaking into her home. On July 24th, Chelsea Serritella called the police and stated someone was trying to break into her home. MNPD officers arrived at the residence on Harrington Ave and spoke to Chelsea, who said that her ex-boyfriend, the defendant, broke into her home. She said they broke up a week ago, and he had moved all his belongings out with him. But earlier on the 24th, she said that Jeremy texted her that he was “having people over” and “people sleeping in her bed.” She said that Jeremy was often paranoid due to his abuse of drugs, most notably Xanax.
Chelsea said that Jeremy began knocking on her side door and kicking it when she refused to open it. After that, she heard him yell, “I told you, you were going to die.” Then he broke the window to her bedroom by punching it and attempted to climb through. Chelsea said at that time, she went and hid in her bathroom. Her son, Anthony Serritella, heard him say that she was going to die and saw him drive away in a green SUV, which was the same one he had arrived in. Police noticed the broken window and muddy footprints on the side door.
