25-year-old Kendy Meliza Alvarado had a domestic altercation with her husband, Jose Rapalo-Cortes, at their Tampa Drive condominium on April 2nd. Officers responded to an unrelated call for service when Alvarado flagged them down. Eventually, Rapalo-Cortes came outside as well and told officers that he and Alvarado had been arguing recently. He then said he was asleep when she entered their room and provoked him to start an argument. She jumped on top of him and started scratching him, leaving visible marks on the front and back of his neck. Alvarado was deemed the primary aggressor and was taken into custody for domestic assault.
