The incident started Saturday night on a “party bus,” the court document states, where Rabourn was making sexual advances on a woman he’d been in a romantic relationship with for months.
The woman told investigators she declined the advances. When the bus stopped at a gas station, Rabourn went to get snacks, but was not allowed back on the bus and left at the gas station.
The woman told police Rabourn tried to call and text her numerous times, but she didn’t respond.
A witness at Hickman Apartments, where the woman lived, told officers she saw a man later identified as Rabourn kick in the door to another apartment and come out of it holding a small dog.
When he reached the first set of stairs, which had an open window, he threw the dog overhand out of the window, according to the probable cause statement. Police measured the distance from the window to where the dog was laying and measured just over 46 feet.
The man then fled the scene, but was located later by Missouri State University security and Springfield Police officers.
