Faircloth also said another man, who witnessed the incident stabbed him in the hand with a knife, but police noted a scratch on his palm that did not appear to be caused by a knife, according to the report. Officers went to the location where the incident occurred and spoke to Greene.
Officers noted that inside the second apartment there was a broken table, items thrown on the floor and damage to the front door, according to the report. Greene told police that Faircloth got upset and refused to leave the apartment.
Greene said Faircloth slapped her in the face and repeatedly hit her in the head before she was able to get away from him, according to the report. Greene said Faircloth kicked the front door and broke her personal property inside the apartment.
Greene, who suffered a wound on her head, said Faircloth tried to entice another man, who was listed as a witness in the report, to fight him, according to the report. Greene said Faircloth broke his own cellphone.
The witness, who was not identified in the report, told police he lives with Greene and he saw Faircloth assault Greene, according to the report. The witness said he grabbed a kitchen knife to intimidate Faircloth, but never harmed him with it.
