Cash App Founder’s Killer Was Cited for Domestic Battery

A police report received by the San Francisco Chronicle says that in August, Nima Momeni was accused of domestic violence.

According to the report, the 38-year-old was cited for domestic battery in August after a woman summoned police to his apartment in Emeryville, California, claiming she had been attacked. Momeni was then released, and prosecutors presumably declined to file charges against him without explaining.

Momeni, who allegedly stabbed Lee with a kitchen knife on April 4, reportedly over a dispute involving Lee’s relationship with Momeni’s sister, was previously thought to have only nonviolent criminal allegations in his past, such as driving under the influence and unlawfully selling a switchblade.
