DARIEN, Conn. -- An angry ex-girlfriend went on a rampage, smashing windows at her ex-flame's home early Saturday after spying inside his home, Darien Police said.

Elizabeth Peacock, 25, of 41 Van Zant St., Apt. 2, Norwalk was charged with first-degree criminal mischief, second-degree burglary, third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and breach of peace.

The homeowner and ex-boyfriend, Christopher Oxer, 30, of 12 Henry St., was charged with disorderly conduct.

Police said the woman had gone to the Henry Street around 2 a.m. Saturday and looked inside the home only to see Oxer with another woman. Peacock began banging on the door, but Oxer refused to let her in, police said. She then grabbed three chairs from outside the house, stacked them on top of one another and was able to pry open a window to gain entry into the home, police said.

Once inside she confronted Oxer and following a period of time, possibly about 30 minutes, police said she and Oxer struggled, with Peacock allegedly biting him on his left ear. He was able to get her out of the house, but the incident didn't stop there, police said.

She smashed three windows in the home and threw a rake and several pieces of wood through a window, police said. Officers arrived and discovered her with cuts on her arm sitting on a stone foundation, police said.

She posted $1,000 bond while Oxer was given a written promise to appear in court. There was no available information on Oxer's charge other than there was a struggle inside the home.

Police said the other woman in the home at the time locked herself into a room to avoid entanglement in the incident.
