Juvenile charged with burglary

LORAIN — A male juvenile was charged with aggravated burglary after he allegedly broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home and assaulted her.

Police were dispatched at 11:50 a.m. to the 1000 block of West 17th Street in reference to a reported assault.

The ex-girlfriend told police officers that she heard loud bangs against the back door of the house before the door “swung violently open” and her ex-boyfriend entered the home.

The couple broke up about a week ago after an argument, and the boy slapped her across the face, according to the former girlfriend.

“When she saw him coming through the door, she was immediately overwhelmed with terror and lashed out,” the report stated.

The report added that she began hitting her ex-boyfriend on the head and face, telling him to leave when he wrapped his arms around her, picking her up and slamming her onto the ground.

The girl then ran to the kitchen, where she picked up a wooden spoon and began hitting the boy. He then picked her up again, slamming her onto the ground a second time and knocking over a flat-screen television that was sitting on a shelf.

The assault continued into the bedroom where he threatened to throw a lamp at her.

“She again rushed (at him), and the two of them fell onto a bed set up in the living room,” the report stated.

The ex-boyfriend then fled the residence before Lorain police officers saw him walking. The boy was charged with aggravated burglary and transported to the Lorain County Detention Center.
