18-year-old Zahraa Malih had a domestic dispute with her juvenile brother at their apartment on Old Mathews Road on January 31st. Her brother advised officers that they argued over him sitting on the couch. He advised that Zahraa told him that if he did not get off the couch, she would “beat his ass.” Then, he stood up, and Zahraa hit him in the face. He wrapped his arms around her and brought her to the ground in an attempt to stop her assault. He then got on top of Zahraa, and she continued to hit him while they were on the ground. He advised that he did not hit Zahraa back during the scuffle. Witness statements were consistent with his, saying Zahraa initiated the altercation verbally and physically. Zahraa was taken into custody for domestic assault on February 1st.
