Frankfort police officer Donald Walsh, 29, was arrested in Mokena and charged with domestic battery July 25, after allegedly choking and headbutting a woman.
Mokena police said they responded to a 9-1-1 call at 3:48 a.m from a 9-year-old girl who heard her mother screaming. When officers arrived on the scene, the victim, a 31-year-old woman with whom Walsh had an on-and-off dating relationship, approached them from a neighbor’s home and told them that Walsh was inside the woman’s home with a gun to his head and that he had threatened to kill himself.
Officers made contact with him at the front door, detained him, and determined that a domestic battery had taken place.
According to police reports, Walsh had texted the woman earlier in the night and told her he would be over around midnight, but didn’t show up until about an hour before police were called. Police said the couple argued about text messages, and that Walsh demanded to see the woman’s phone. When he couldn’t unlock the phone to view it, Walsh proceeded to choke the woman, strike her with the bottom of his right fist, and head-butt her.
