A resident of Cary in North Carolina was recently charged after he was suspected of assaulting his former girlfriend, WRAL.com reported on June 14.
The incident happened at a market in Hudson on June 10. Reports said Isle of Palms Police filed several charges against 39-year-old Robert Howell after his ex-girlfriend Autumn Yee, who was apparently being held hostage, discreetly told a clerk to call police. Yee, who was trying to get away from Howell, reportedly sustained some scratches. A day following the incident, Howell’s former wife Sarah asked the court for a protective order for her and her children. Captain Randall Rhyne stated that they take “domestic violence very seriously” in Cary.
