Cops: Morrisville Man Charged with False Imprisonment, Obstruction

A Morrisville man was arrested and charged last week with false imprisonment and obstructing justice, according to court records, in what was a “domestic assault”  involving two jurisdictions.

Levon Jones, 31, police say he held his girlfriend in his home against her will last week and interfered with the police investigation.

According to the criminal complaint, police on Tuesday responded for a second time to a south Green Street address.  The “rolling” domestic call originated out of the Lawrenceville Police Department and was transferred to Morrisville Borough Police just after 7 am, July 19,  police said in court records.

Police spoke with the victim’s mother who said she was sent images from her daughter that showed she had black eye and bruising on her nose.

Responding officer John Aspromonti, noted in the criminal complaint, he was the S. Green St. home earlier, knocked on the door and no one responded. This time Jones reluctantly answered the door.  Apermonti told Jones he was investigating an alleged assault and a person being held against their will.

Jones,  according to police records, said the victim wasn’t with him and he hadn’t seen her in awhile and the relationship between the two had ended.  Jones added they share custody of a child and that’s when they see each other. Jones was asked when was the last time he saw the victim, responding it was a while ago.

The veteran officer called the victim’s mother, putting her on speakerphone so Jones could hear the conversation also providing Jones an opportunity to respond. She accused Jones of Lying knew her daughter in his apartment and was injured, according to court records.  Jones story changed in response to the mothers accusations.  Slipping up in response he said he dropped the victim off at work that morning.

Aspromonti told Jones, the criminal complaint said, he believed he was lying and the victim was being held in his home against her will. He yelled into the S. Green St home and heard a woman respond. Officer Erica Mcintyre entered the home to check on the victim and make sure she was ok. She called for an ambulance to take her to a medical facility for treatment of her injuries and further evaluation.

Jones was sent to Bucks County Correctional Facility in lieu of 10 percent $100,000.00. Three days later his bail was reduced by the Court of Common Pleas to 10 percent of $25,000.00 however he  remains in jail, according to court records, due to an arrest warrant for  domestic assault filed by Cranberry Township Police.

Jones is scheduled to appear in Morrisville District Court to answer the charges on July 25th, court records show.
