Jonathan Majors’ accuser won’t face assault charge before actor’s N.Y. hearing, prosecutors say
Grace Jabbari, the woman who accused Jonathan Majors of assaulting her on March 25, has been apprehended on suspicion of misdemeanor assault and misdemeanor criminal mischief.
Jabbari’s arrest took place at Manhattan’s 10th precinct on a Wednesday. She was subsequently released after a desk appearance. Remarkably, the District Attorney’s office has communicated its intention not to pursue charges against her regarding the alleged incident.
Meanwhile, Jonathan Majors faces misdemeanor charges of harassment and assault stemming from his arrest following the purported domestic violence episode on the same March date. Authorities had responded to a 911 call in which a 30-year-old woman reported an assault by Majors, with the police duly noting her minor injuries. Majors, however, was released from police custody on the very day of the incident.

Back in June, the well-known Loki actor filed a counter-complaint against Jabbari, alleging that she had, in fact, assaulted him on that very night. His legal counsel, Priya Chaudhry, vehemently denied any wrongdoing on his behalf.
In legal documents related to Majors’ case, the prosecuting authorities conveyed their decision not to press charges against Jabbari, citing the tardiness of the allegations and characterizing it as a part of the routine process for evaluating counter-complaints in cases of domestic violence. Jabbari and her attorney were officially informed of this decision on September 21.
An Investigatory Card, known as an I-Card (distinct from an arrest warrant), was issued for Jabbari in late June, alerting law enforcement officers to probable cause for her arrest. Prosecutors subsequently requested the issuance of a desk appearance ticket for Jabbari, requiring her to return to court at a specified date instead of remaining in custody until an arraignment.
The prosecution had, at one point, intended to arrange travel and lodging for Jabbari, a British citizen, to ensure her presence as a witness in Majors’ trial, as per the documents.
A trial date of November 29 has been scheduled for Majors, who participated virtually in his hearing at the New York Criminal Court. Judge Michael Gaffey of New York denied the defense’s motion to dismiss the case as well.
