25-year-old Jalan Armstrong allegedly struck his lover after she went through his phone. Whitney Gama, Jalan’s girlfriend, spoke to police after they were called to her and Jalan’s apartment at Easton Apartments. She told police that earlier that day, on August 10th, she went through Jalan’s phone, saw text messages from another woman, and confronted him about it. She said he snatched his phone from her and pushed her face into a pillow, causing her to struggle to breathe. Jalan then punched her several times in the face and head. Also, he threatened to hit her with his pistol, but she said she could not tell if he had it on his person. She said that she knew he owned one. Then, she said, he let her up, and kicked her in the legs when she attempted to leave, causing her to fall, but eventually left the room. During the altercation, Whitney was face timing a family member who could not see anything but thought they heard a gun cock. Police reported that Whitney’s lip was busted and had bruising on her face and ear. Jalan was placed under arrest due to her visible injuries for aggravated assault.
