Darius Blakemore, 30, is charged with simple domestic assault stemming from an incident Thursday night at the same duplex.

Court documents say a woman saw Blakemore head-butt his girlfriend several times. The woman told investigators that Blakemore’s girlfriend already had a black eye and bruises from previous assaults, according to court documents.

Jackson police responded to the same home Friday afternoon on Old Humboldt Road for what police believe was a domestic-related hostage situation. No one has been charged in connection with that incident.

Blakemore was released from custody over the weekend.
