Wednesday, October 14, 2020, Assistant Chief Mark Rains for the Atoka Police Department investigated a claim of assault and battery – domestic abuse.
The victim told Rains they had been in a vehicle with the suspect, Obiageli Nnabuchionze, 28, on their way to a local business.
Nnabuchionze began to be hateful towards the victim, calling them derogatory names and stating, “I wish you would just die.”
Driving to a residence on Dunbar Street, the victim attempted to exit the vehicle and Nnabuchionze became irate. She started to hit the victim on the back of the head with a cellphone, and clawing at the back of their neck with her fingers.
The victim was able to escape the vehicle, but not before being momentarily strangled by Nnabuchionze pulling on the collar of their shirt.
Once outside the vehicle, the suspect began pulling a dog, belonging to the victim, by a line tether leash. The victim stepped in and forcibly took the pet away to prevent any further harm.
She began “slinging” items out of the trunk of the vehicle, shattering the back glass after throwing a repelling harness.
No arrests have been made as of press time.
