DELMAR, Md. (AP) — Authorities have charged a Delaware man with home invasion and assault after he showed up at another man's home while his fiancée was inside.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports Delmar police said the victim was with a female acquaintance when her fiancé arrived around 4:30 a.m. Monday.

According to police, 28-year-old John W. Whitby III kicked in the door, struck the male victim with an unidentified object and left with his fiancée after the assault. Police said the victim was treated at a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
