Actor Jonathan Majors was arrested Saturday morning in New York City on allegations of domestic violence, authorities said.
The 33-year-old “Creed III” star was taken into custody on suspicion of strangulation, assault and harassment, the NYPD reported in a statement provided to CBS News.
According to the NYPD, officers were dispatched to a 911 call from an apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood at 11:14 a.m., where a “preliminary investigation determined” that there had been a “domestic dispute” involving Majors and a 30-year-old woman.
The woman, who told officers she had been assaulted, was transported to a hospital with minor head and neck injuries, police said. She was in stable condition.
Majors was arrested at the scene, police reported.
A representative for Majors told CBS News in a brief statement that the actor “has done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”
Majors’ other film and television credits include “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” “Devotion” and “Lovecraft Country,” for which he received an Emmy nod.
