DUNWOODY, Ga. — A man reported he was attacked at home by a man who forced his way into the residence on Dunwoody Crossing May 11.

The victim and his roommate told police that they were sitting on their patio when they heard someone pounding on their front door. The victim said he immediately recognized the voice of the suspect, a former boyfriend, demanding to come in.

When the victim refused to let him in, the suspect allegedly rammed the door and broke in yelling and screaming. The victim told police the suspect tackled him and bit his chest while pummeling his stomach. 

When the victim’s roommate called 911, the suspect immediately fled the home.

The victim requested that the suspect be criminally charged and that a protective order be filed to avoid any future contact. Later, police stopped a vehicle seen cruising past the home and identified the driver as the suspect in the home invasion. He was arrested and taken to DeKalb County Jail.
