MILFORD, Del.- A 40-year-old man is behind bars following accusations that he brutally attacked his ex-girlfriend and her friend in Milford.

Clarence Hendricks Jr. of Dover is charged with second-degree assault, criminal mischief under $1,500, carjacking 1st degree, terroristic threatening, malicious mischief by a motor vehicle, offensive touching. 

Milford police said that on Sunday, Sept. 29, officers were called to a domestic disturbance at a home on the unit block of West Thrush Drive in the Meadows of Shawnee development. When officers arrived on the scene, they said they found a 39-year-old Lincoln man lying in the front yard with obvious facial injuries. 

Police said a further investigation revealed that Hendricks was waiting at the home for his 50-year-old ex-girlfriend and her friend. Hendricks allegedly struck his ex-girlfriend and dragged her out of the vehicle and then got in and started striking her friend, according to investigators.
