TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A southwestern Washington man is facing several charges after police say he assaulted his ex-girlfriend, who had a restraining order against him, and two men before leading police on a chase.

The News Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2gYNnTd ) the Eatonville man was charged Monday with 14 offenses, including assault and burglary.

Police had responded to a report of a home burglary in process Saturday to find three people injured.

Court documents say the 24-year-old suspect caused his ex-girlfriend, who has epilepsy, to suffer a head injury and a seizure. One male victim suffered multiple facial fractures and will need reconstructive surgery. The second man had bruises on his face and stomach.

The suspect had fled the scene when officers arrived but was later located and arrested.

He denied the assaults took place.
