Actor Jonathan Majors arrested for allegedly assaulting woman in Manhattan

CHELSEA, Manhattan (WABC) — ‘Creed III’ actor Jonathan Majors was arraigned following his recent arrest on assault charges, according to police.

Officials say that Majors, 33, was involved in a domestic dispute with a 30-year-old woman in New York City. The woman told police she was assaulted and Majors was taken into custody.

The woman sustained minor injuries to her head and neck. She was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

Majors was charged with strangulation, assault, and harassment.

A representative for Majors denied any wrongdoing by the actor.

“He has done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”

Majors is one of the fastest rising stars in Hollywood. After breaking through in 2019’s “The Last Black Man in San Francisco,” Majors has starred in “Da 5 Bloods,” “The Harder They Fall” and last year’s “Devotion.” He also stars in the recent Sundance Film Festival entry “Magazine Dreams,” which Searchlight Pictures is to release in December.
