Bronx man arrested for twisting ex-wife’s wrist, ripping up $20 bills
A Bronx, New York man turned himself in on a warrant that included two counts of risk of injury to a minor, breach of peace in the second degree, and violation of a restraining order at the Trumbull Police Department around noon Wednesday, June 29.
Police said Balwant Ibaran, 48, grabbed his ex-wife’s wrist and twisted it during a violent domestic dispute that took place at her home on Windy Ridge back on May 29.
According to a report, Ibaran went to pick up his two 11-year-old children from the home and was driving away with them when he found out that his ex-wife was dating a new man.
Police said that the suspect became enraged and turned the car around. Back at the home, he got into a verbal argument with the homeowner before ripping up three $20 bills that were in her pocketbook, the report added.
A physical altercation occurred and Ibaran fled the scene before the victim could call the police.
On the scene, the 11-year-old twins told police that their father smelled of alcohol and was very angry when he was driving.
While warrant was being written up for the suspect, he returned to the home later that night and stole his ex-wife’s car, police said.
That charge was later added to the report.
He was held on a $5,000 bond and brought to court Thursday, June 30.
