Police are looking for a Philadelphia man they say took a bite out of his ex-girlfriend's lip after breaking into her Delaware home. New Castle County police spokesman Cpl. Trinidad Navarro says 25-year-old Edmond Dejesus broke into the woman's Claymont home Saturday night, forced her to the floor and bit her top lip. When the woman's mother tried to intervene, she was also assaulted.

Navarro says the woman's current boyfriend was able to free the woman and Dejesus punched him in the face before fleeing. As police responded, an officer spotted Dejesus' white Honda Civic and pursued him, the chase was called off after Dejesus crossed into Pennsylvania.
