Man accused of attacking ex-girlfriend, stealing her car

JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - A 37-year-old man is behind bars accused of breaking into his ex-girlfriend's home, assaulting her and taking off with her car on James Island.

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office has charged Dexter Lamont Robinson of Mt. Pleasant with criminal domestic violence, burglary and theft of a motor vehicle.

On Tuesday at 3:28 a.m., a deputy responded to a home on Quail Drive in reference to a home invasion.

The 31-year-old victim said Robinson, who is her ex-boyfriend, had kicked in the back door, along with the bedroom and bathroom doors as she was hiding in the bathroom.

According to the victim, Robinson then punched the victim in the face which made her nose bleed. A police report states Robinson then got the victim's car keys and took off with her car.

Deputies say they later located the victim's car on Montgomery, and the keys thrown in a yard beside the victim's home.

Authorities say a deputy located Robinson riding a bike down Albemarle Road.
