A Groton Township man was charged with domestic violence Friday night after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend upon returning home from a night of drinking in “Port Tucky”

Matthew Greenawald, 36, 8200 block Ohio 113, was arrested at about 11:30 p.m. at his girlfriend’s Seminary Road home.

Greenawald had been drinking in Port Clinton, and later told deputies he “got his (expletive) kicked in Port Tucky” according to an Erie County deputy’s report.

When he returned home intoxicated, his girlfriend tried to keep him outside, but Greenawald allegedly forced his way past her, breaking a door handle in the process. Once inside, he told the woman to stitch up his head because he “got a boot to his face” the report said.

He then stripped and hopped in the shower, but the woman responded by turning off the water flow, tossing all his clothes on the patio and ordering him outside, the report said. Greenawald then allegedly elbowed the woman in the throat and began kicking her, and he also pummeled the side of the home, the report said.

He remains in the Erie County jail without bond.
