MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man is accused of breaking into his estranged wife’s home and assaulting her and another man with glass and a fence post.

Clinton Walker, 41, is facing multiple counts of aggravated burglary, aggravated assault, and domestic assault.

The attack happened in July, but officials arrested Walker this week.

The police report said Walker and his wife were separated.

Walker reportedly knocked on her door, and she didn’t answer. He left briefly, then returned to the back of her home.

The report said he used a metal post from a chain link fence to bash in her glass door. He then punched and choked his wife.

The man that was there with Walker’s estranged wife was able to force Walker off her.

Walker reportedly left again, then returned to the home, throwing shattered glass from the door at the woman.

When the other man again tried to intervene, Walker hit the man with the fence post, cutting his arm and bruising his body.

Neighbors WREG spoke with had not heard about the attack but said the area is usually quiet.

Walker’s bond is $30,000.
