MAGNOLIA, Del.– Delaware State Police say troopers arrested a Magnolia man on assault and related charges after they found him hiding under a sink.
Troopers said they responded to a 911 call at around 3:50 p.m. Monday, at a house on Bertha Drive in Magnolia. According to police, a male suspect broke into the home and refused to leave, causing the victim and the couple's three young children to flee.
Police said troopers entered the house and found 20-year-old Matthew Kerr of Magnolia hiding under a bathroom sink and arrested him without incident.
Investigators said Kerr was involved in two other incidents with the same victim.

Police said the dispute occurred in front of the couple's children, each ages 6, 3 and 1. The second occurred on July 13 when Kerr allegedly broke into the same Bertha Drive home and refused to leave, police said.
Kerr has been charged with strangulation; terroristic threatening; second-degree reckless endangerment; third-degree assault; theft; three counts of endangering a child's welfare; second-degree burglary; stalking; criminal mischief; unauthorized use of a motor vehicle; and driving while suspended.
Kerr has been committed and is being held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in lieu of $12,850 cash bail.
