CROWN HEIGHTS — A 54-year-old man was arrested this week for cutting up and pouring bleach on furniture, clothes and shoes at his girlfriend’s apartment on Empire Boulevard, police said.
The 41-year-old victim told police she came home from work Nov. 30 and found her front door kicked in and all of her clothes, sneakers and furniture cut or slashed and covered in bleach.
The incident followed a dispute between the woman and the suspect, Gregory Jackson, who was arrested on Wednesday.
Jackson is charged with burglary, petit larceny and damaging property, court records show. His attorney could not immediately be reached for comment. He was released on $1,350 cash bail and issued a temporary order of protection. He is due back in court on Monday.
