An Upper Marlboro man was arrested Tuesday, weeks after assaulting and destroying the property of a Taneytown woman, police say.
Antonio Delantae Mclain, 26, of the 9000 Block of Spring Hill Lane, has been charged with second-degree assault and malicious destruction of property, according to electronic court records. He is being held without bail, court records show.
A woman reported to the Taneytown Police Department on Dec. 28 that Mclain on Dec. 25 assaulted her at her Taneytown apartment by punching her in the right eye with a closed fist while holding her hair, police wrote in an application for statement of charges.
According to the statement, the woman said Mclain destroyed her iPad, two picture frames and a lamp.
In the following days, Mclain sent the woman threatening text messages “in a fit [of] rage due to his displeasure with [the woman] filing a protection order against him,” police wrote.
