A Savage man has been charged with kicking in his ex-girlfriend’s front door in Burnsville, slamming her against the wall and threatening to kill her after she told him that their relationship was over.
Kevin Michael Slominski, 26, is charged with two felonies in the Oct. 29 incident: first-degree burglary with assault, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $35,000 fine, and making terroristic threats, for which the maximum penalty is five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Slominski is also charged with interference with a 911 call, a gross misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of a year in jail and a $3,000 fine, and with two misdemeanor counts of domestic assault, each of which has a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
According to the criminal complaint, Burnsville police were called to a home on Greenhaven Drive just before midnight Oct. 29 when several people reported a woman screaming for help.
When officer arrived they found the door forced open, with the deadbolt still engaged. The frame was smashed and the door was bent and cracked. Officers met the victim, who identified her assailant as Slominski, her ex-boyfriend. The woman told police that she and Slominski had broken up a week earlier, and Slominski had called her on Oct. 29, telling her that he wanted to talk about their relationship.
The woman said she allowed Slominski to visit so they could talk. During the conversation, the woman said, she told Slominski that their relationship was over. Slominski got “very upset” and began to yell and throw things around the woman’s apartment before walking out, she told police.
The victim said she shot the deadbolt to keep Slominski out, but that he paced around outside her home for three hours, yelling and pounding on the door, telling her to let him in. She said she called Slominski’s mother, hoping to enlist her help in getting Slominski to leave, but was unsuccessful.
The woman said she was working on cleaning up the mess that Slominski made and was scrubbing at a stain on the carpet when she heard a loud bang, looked up and saw that Slominski had kicked in her door and was advancing on her aggressively. She thought Slominski was going to hurt her “simply from the look on his face,” according to the complaint.
Slominski yelled expletives at the woman and told her he was going to kill her, telling her that she wasn’t going to be with anyone else because she was his, the complaint says.
Slominski grabbed the woman’s shoulder and slammed her against the wall, knocking the breath out of her, according to the complaint. When she began to scream for help and tried to call 911, Slominski grabbed her phone, tried to break it over his knee and said, “You think you’re calling the cops? I don’t think so,” the complaint charges.
The victim began to scream for help, and Slominski jammed his fist into her mouth to keep her quiet, she told police.
Slominski suddenly grabbed the victim’s phone and fled. She ran outside and yelled for help, causing several neighbors to call police.
Slominski remains in the Dakota County Jail on a $150,000 bond. He is also on a U.S. Marshal Service hold on a probation violation. An omnibus hearing in his Dakota County case is scheduled Dec. 11 in Dakota County District Court in Hastings.
