Sapulpa man suspects girl of seeing another guy, allegedly hits her in the eye with a shoe

A guy who thought his girl of "2 or 3 weeks" was talking to another guy, allegedly wrecked her apartment and hit her in the eye with a shoe.

On the evening of October 3rd, Officer Brandan Welsh was called to an apartment on South Main Street regarding a possible domestic violence.

When he arrived, he found the victim, a woman who had a black left eye.
The woman told Welsh that she had been startled awake about 11am by a guy that she had been seeing for 2 or 3 weeks, later identified as 23-year-old Javohn Baker. He was using her phone and talking to the other party about using her car, without her knowing. The victim said that she sat up in bed and said, “What the h*ll?” and the defendant “flipped out,” accusing her of talking to another guy. When she asked him what he was talking about, she said he threw the phone at her.

According to the police affidavit, the victim said that Baker went around destroying her apartment, breaking a mirror, emptying the trash can on the floor and breaking her diamond necklace and earrings. When she got up out of bed, she said Baker had a shoe in his hand, and hit her in the eye with it, causing it to bruise.

Baker was subsequently located near the 100 block of east Fairlane and taken into custody. He was booked on charges of domestic abuse. A search on his criminal history turned up another case of domestic assault by strangulation in 2015. That case was referred to the District Attorney and dismissed.
