Stephen Andrew Smith

A 33-year-old Kingman man was jailed last week on charges that he broke into his estranged girlfriend's home and assaulted her.

Police went to a home in the 3200 block of Prescott Street around 10:30 p.m. Aug. 29 after neighbors called to say they could hear yelling and screaming coming from the residence.

Capt. Rusty Cooper said officers heard the screaming when they arrived and found Stephen Andrew Smith inside the woman's home.

Cooper said Smith forced his way inside the home, assaulted the woman and damaged furniture. She was not seriously hurt.

The woman had a valid order of protection against Smith, Cooper added.

Smith also had a criminal warrant for his arrest out of Kingman Municipal Court for a previous domestic violence incident.  

Smith was booked into the Mohave County Jail on felony charges of domestic violence; assault, domestic violence; aggravated harassment; and second-degree burglary.
