Malkija Underwood Is Facing Charges After He Allegedly Threatened To Kill Woman Over Prank | June 14
Bradenton: Chances are at one point or another you were either part of a prank or witnessed one. While most of us can laugh it off, sometimes that’s difficult. Florida man Malkija Underwood is accused of threatening to kill a woman with a gun after she pulled a prank on his brother.
The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said one of the brothers became angry at the woman over a prank, resulting in a physical altercation between the pair. One of the brothers punched the female victim twice in the face before biting her in the neck while she tried to escape.
The other brother, 20-year-old Malkija Underwood, is then accused of going into his room and returning with a loaded gun. He allegedly pointed what the victim described as an assault-style rifle at her and said: “I am going to kill you.”
The woman is alleged to have gotten away from Underwood’s brother after kicking him in the groin and fleeing.
Destiny Underwood, mother of the two men, denied that Malkija threatened the woman with a real firearm. She claimed that the 20-year-old pointed a pellet gun, which she herself had purchased, at the woman.
“There were no marks on her, she was not inside my house and if my boys are both over six feet and if you got beat up by those boys, you would know it,” she told the Miami Herald.
The brother alleged to have assaulted the woman was not charged at the scene, but the state attorney’s office is looking into the case for consideration of charges.
Malkija Underwood was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
