James Island man accused of breaking into home, beating ex-girlfriend

JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

A 25-year-old James Island man is behind bars accused of breaking into a home and punching his ex-girlfriend multiple times in the face.

The Charleston Police Department arrested Tyler Sinclair Richardson Monday afternoon and charged him with criminal domestic violence, first-degree burglary and resisting arrest.

On Thursday night, officers responded to a home on Fleming Road regarding a burglary.

The 21-year-old victim said that Richardson kicked in the front door of her home, went upstairs and kicked down the bedroom door. According to the victim, Richardson then punched her in the face multiple times.

A witness said he held Richardson back so that the victim could escape. Police say Richardson then broke free of the witness' hold, chased after the victim outside and then began to punch her in the face.

A police report states Richardson left the scene before officers arrived.

The victim said Richardson was her ex-boyfriend who had moved out over a month ago and attacked her because he believed she was having a relationship with one of his friends.

Authorities say Richardson had a prior arrest on Jan. 14 for criminal domestic violence.

Richardson was locked up at the Al Cannon Detention Center.
