Tribune Chronicle

WARREN — A 32-year-old woman was hospitalized Wednesday morning after police said her ex-boyfriend broke into her North Park Avenue home and attacked her.

According to a Warren police report, officers were called about 8 a.m. to the 500 block of North Park Avenue to investigate a burglary in progress.

The woman called 911 after a man gained entry to the home and began assaulting her. On the 911 call recording, the woman could be heard screaming for the ex-boyfriend to get off her, and then the line went dead, the report states.

When officers arrived, the woman answered the door limping, disheveled and in a very emotional state, with blood streaming down from a small cut on her left leg, the report states.

The woman said the man entered the home through an unlocked first-floor bedroom window. The woman told police the man threw chairs at her and then began striking her with a fan, breaking it into two, the report states.

The man then slammed her into a mirror, shattering it, the report states, and she told police he used one of the glass shards to cut her. The woman told police he verbally threatened her, took her food stamp card and fled out a rear door, riding away on a green bicycle, the report states.

No arrests have been made.
