According to police reports, Jenkins reportedly attacked the woman around 7:30 a.m. Oct. 12 by grabbing her hair and punching her. The reported victim had a bruise on her left arm, bumps on her head, and emotional distress, police said.

The assault reportedly occurred shortly after Jenkins' boyfriend told her via Facebook their relationship was over. Jenkins went to his residence and found him in bed with the victim, authorities said.

Jenkins allegedly admitted under Miranda to assaulting the victim, police said.

Assault causing bodily injury is a serious misdemeanor, generally punishable by up to a year in jail and a maximum fine of $1,875.
