SALISBURY, Md.- Police have arrested a 34-year-old man accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend with a knife during a weekend home invasion in Salisbury. 

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office reports that shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday, a deputy responded to a reported disturbance at a home on the 200 block of Eden Street. The sheriff's office said that upon arrival, the deputy met with a woman who stated that her ex-boyfriend, Jose Angel Martinez, of Salisbury, went to the home uninvited and forced his way inside.
