Anthony Powell, 28, of Dover

A man is wanted on multiple charges, after police say he assaulted his ex-girlfriend in her home, in Dover.

The Dover Police Department says on Saturday, just before 11:00 PM, 28-year-old Anthony Powell, of Dover, knocked on his ex-girlfriend's door, in the area of Stevenson Drive, and demanded to be let in. Police say the victim barricaded both the front and back doors of her home and hid in a bedroom.

According to the report, Powell then broke a back window and entered the home. The victim reportedly fled out of her bedroom window to find help. A short time later, authorities report that as the victim attempted to go to a neighbor's house for help, Powell ran out of the home and struck the victim in her mouth and chest, causing injuries. 

Powell then apparently fled before police arrived on scene.
