28-year-old Devanne Burnett had a domestic incident with her ex-boyfriend, Carlos Hall, at his Hickory Manor apartment on Hamilton Church Road in the early hours of February 16th. When officers arrived, they spoke with Hall, who stated he was asleep when Burnett parked outside his building, honked her car horn and started texting him to come outside to talk with her. Hall repeatedly refused via text, which was when Burnett came to his door, knocking loudly for several minutes. Hall then opened his door to stop his neighbors from waking up. After he answered the door, Burnett started yelling and entered his unit without consent. Hall stated Burnett began to strike him in the face with a closed fist. Hall and the witness, Ms. Ghoulston, told her multiple times that she could not enter their home. Hall said that Ghoulston called the police, and Burnett fled the scene. Hall did not have any visible injuries. Officers reviewed camera footage, which showed Burnett yelling at Hall, pushing his door open, entering his home, and lunging toward him. Burnett was taken into custody for aggravated burglary on March 25th.
