Officers spoke with the victim, who suffered from a visible injury. Officers determined that an argument between the woman and Kamalu escalated into a physical altercation, at which time Kamalu assaulted the woman, causing the injury. Kamalu was not present at the time officers responded for the incident so a warrant was issued for his arrest the same day and served yesterday morning.

Kamalu (27), of the unit block of Caerleon Court, 21208, is charged with second degree assault and was released yesterday on $20,000 bond.

This incident remains under the investigative authority of the Pikesville Precinct.
