Crime Files : Kevin Jenkins

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) –     Cops say 31 year-old Kevin Jenkins needs to be locked up.  They say around Valentines Day he attacked his 5-month pregnant girlfriend.

“There was a verbal confrontation between them in regards to another woman.  Mr Jenkins choked this woman to unconscious.  When she came to he was kicking her and threatened that he wanted to kick the baby out of her,” explained Springfield Police Sergeant John Delaney.

Jenkins got away before cops got there, they’ve been looking for him ever since.  Springfield police say acts like that aren’t unusual for Kevin Jenkins.  They say he has a history of violence.

“Since 2001 he’s had 5-restraining orders against him by 4 different women,” added Delaney.

Detectives believe Kevin Jenkins is still in the Springfield area and he’s been known to hang out at the bus station in the city.

He also has connections in several other communities in Western Mass.  So keep your eyes open in case you cross paths with this wanted criminal.  Your tip could land him behind bars.

  • hmmmm

    He was caught, but oh well keep spreading the word about how evil he his. He also attacked another pregnant woman in November. He had two warrants against him so it shows that he will never change. Hopefully those children are born healthy.

  • Tarahja

    There was no sense in showing this on the news last night because he was caught last week in Norwich CT. What is wrong with the police, they don’t know where people are, isn’t that their job to check the facts? Who’s to say the story is even true, they might have made that up too.

  • lol!!

    some fam people are baddd, but pray for angela cause she’s got lots of screws loose if she thinks DJ ain’t a badddd person who needs to be locked away as a habitual criminal



  • afroman

    yeah that Angela girl sounds pretty dumb haha

  • Smarter than that

    Tarahja they did get something slightly wrong. See hes had 17 restraining orders placed against him, but only 5 of them have been followed thru with. Doesn’t matter how or when the facts were laid out. Bottom line is people are not safe when a man is wanting to beat a baby out of a woman. Get it Stupid???

  • survivor

    DJ has had more than 17 restraining orders against him. I have 2 permanent scars on my face from that psycho/sociopath. He has tried to kill me. Kidnapped and beat me while I was pregnant. I’ve followed through and have a life time RO. I hope justice is served this time around!!!!!!!!! He needs to be locked away forever!!!!!!

    @ Survivor. I tried to warn you, but you unfortunately & mistakenly thought I was being vindictive due to wanting him back when nothing could’ve been further from the truth. I am glad things worked out for you, stay strong in future choices, I wish u the best. Sincerely, First Survivor
