Harry Leroy Lowe II, 29, of In­dian Head has been charged with first- and sec­ond-de­gree bur­glary, first- and sec­ond-de­gree as­sault and home in­va­sion af­ter al­legedly at­tack­ing his ex-girl­friend’s boyfriend and send­ing the man to the hospi­tal.

Ac­cord­ing to charg­ing doc­u­ments filed with the court, on Satur­day, Oct. 13, at 7:12 a.m., the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­ceived a call of an as­sault in progress at a res­i­dence on Jef­fer­son Road in Wal­dorf.

At the scene, Deputy John­son con­tacted the vic­tim, who was found sit­ting in his work van. The vic­tim had blood and swelling on the right side of his face, ac­cord­ing to John­son.

Both the front and rear pas­sen­ger side tires of the van were al­legedly slashed by Lowe, ac­cord­ing to the vic­tim, be­cause the vic­tim was in bed with his girl­friend.

Lowe’s ex-girl­friend, the vic­tim’s girl­friend, lives at the res­i­dence and re­ported that Lowe has not lived at the res­i­dence for ap­prox­i­mately two months.

The vic­tim told of­fi­cers he was sleep­ing in bed with his girl­friend when Lowe al­legedly came in the room and struck him sev­eral times in the face, knock­ing him un­con­scious dur­ing the as­sault. The vic­tim re­mem­bers wak­ing up in the shower with blood all over the bath­room and his clothes, with his face hurt­ing and swollen.

The vic­tim’s girl­friend told of­fi­cers Lowe was sup­posed to ar­rive at the res­i­dence later in the day to watch their son while she went to work but she did not know Lowe had to work that day as well. She stated that Lowe was not in­vited and did not an­nounce his pres­ence when he came into the res­i­dence. It was stated that the bed­room door was locked at the time of the of in­ci­dent and she was not sure how Lowe gained en­try into the bed­room.

The vic­tim was trans­ported by he­li­copter to Prince Ge­orge’s Shock/ Trauma with pos­si­ble bro­ken jaw and cheek bone on the right side of his face, ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments.

Lowe was ar­rested by John­son and taken to the Charles County De­ten­tion Cen­ter.

Bond for Lowe was set at $2,500. A pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing is sched­uled for Nov. 13.
