Columbus police: Father of woman's kids breaks into her home, hits man there with a wine bottle

The father of a woman's two children kicked in the woman's front window early today, forced his way into a bedroom and attacked another man there with a wine bottle, Columbus police reported.

Officers said the 19-year-old woman, who lives in the 4600 block of Holly Avenue, identified the intruder as Steven Wages, 22, of Hodges Drive. Wages left shattered glass cluttering the floor of her home as he forced his way in about 12:45 a.m., then kicked in a bedroom door and attacked another 22-year-old man who was in the house, the two victims told investigators.

The man said Wages pushed him to the floor and smacked him in the back of the head with a bottle of Sutter Home wine, briefly knocking the man unconscious and leaving cuts on the back off his head and his left index finger, police reported.
