Albany woman assaulted by ex-boyfriend

Woman victimized in home invasion on Monday

ALBANY — Multiple charges could be faced by a man who invaded the home of his ex-girlfriend and assaulted her early Monday morning, officials from the Albany Police Department said.

Officers responded to 320 S. Jackson St. at around 2 a.m. Monday after a 25-year old woman reported that her ex-boyfriend forced his way into her residence through the front door by kicking the door in and striking her several times in the head and face with a handgun. The suspect fled the scene before police arrived. Paramedics responded to the scene and treated her injuries, but she refused to be transported to a hospital for additional treatment, said Phyllis Banks, spokeswoman for the APD.

All attempts to locate the ex-boyfriend were unsuccessful, Banks said. This case was forwarded to the APD Criminal Investigations Bureau. Among the charges the ex-boyfriend might face include aggravated assault, burglary, aggravated stalking and cruelty to children in the third degree.

Nothing was reported stolen from the incident, Banks said. Further information on the status of the investigation was not immediately available on Monday.
