SYCAMORE – A DeKalb man accused of attacking his teenage girlfriend and then destroying her phone and other property was ordered held without bond at DeKalb County jail on Monday.

Kajuannis K. Riggins, 23, of the 300 block of south 11th Street, DeKalb, is charged with domestic battery, theft, and criminal damage to property. If convicted of the most serious charge, criminal damage to property, he could face probation or one to three years in prison.

At the time of his arrest, Riggins was free on bond on charges of robbery and aggravated battery in connection with an October incident. Judge Robbin Stuckert ordered Riggins held without bond.

According to court records, DeKalb police responded to a report around 1 p.m. Sunday involving Riggins and his girlfriend of three months, who is a minor, court records show.

The girl's mother told police that Riggins and the girl began arguing after she learned he was spending time with a woman. Riggins allegedly pushed her face, knocking off her glasses, and threw her phone on the ground, damaging the screen.

After the girl told Riggins to leave, he grabbed her by the throat, police said in court records.

Riggins then drove to the 800 block of Ridge Drive in DeKalb, and threw the girl's phone, social security card, apartment key fob, and driver's license out of the passenger side window of his vehicle.

He is next due in court at 9 a.m. Friday.
