5410 N. Nevada Ave.
Violent domestic disturbance at Sunset Creek Apartments. Officers reported “the call indicated a female was screaming and being slammed against a wall.”

“Upon arrival, Officer Jelmo approached the apartment and heard a female screaming. He knocked loudly announcing ‘police’ and demanding that the occupants open the door. When he received no response he forced entry to stop the violence.

Once inside a female and child ran out of the apartment. Officer Jelmo confronted the male party inside, later identified as Kevin Eaves (20).

While the officer was attempting to place handcuffs on the suspect, a female, later identified as Kayla Rhuby, (19) entered the apartment behind the officer and demanded to see his ID. The officer was in full police uniform at the time. The officer ordered her to leave the apartment for his safety, as he was still making the arrest without any other officers on scene.

Ms. Rhuby refused to leave, continuing to demand the officer’s ID as he attempted to make the arrest, so the officer raised his hand to move her away for his safety. Ms. Rhuby slapped the officer’s arm as he reached for her. The officer, not knowing if Rhuby was going to continue her assault against him, grabbed Ms. Rhuby, pinning her against a wall while he tried to control his original prisoner. As other officers arrived, Ms. Rhuby was able to be handcuffed.

Numerous witnesses were in the hallway yelling at the officer when additional officers arrived. The situation was highly volatile but was defused without further use of force.

Eaves was booked into CJC for 3rd Degree Assault, Harassment, Child Abuse and Failure to Vacate Premises Upon Police Officer Demand. Rhuby was served and released for Obstruction of a Police Officer.”
