An Annapolis man has been charged with assault, burglary and destruction of property in two attacks on a Severna Park woman and her daughter and son-in-law.

Paul Heins, 48, of the 400 block of Master Derby Court is accused of confronting his ex-girlfriend, Eleanor Perkins, 51, at a home in the first block of River Road in Severna Park about 10 p.m. Sunday, hitting her in the head and face and then fleeing.

Nearly four hours later, Annapolis police say, Heins returned to the Severna Park home looking for Perkins, who was not there. Police allege that Heins forced his way into the house, where he was stabbed by Perkins' daughter, Courtney Bentley, 23.

Heins is accused of then repeatedly striking her husband, Steven Bentley, 27, in the head with a blunt object, according to police.

The husband was treated for multiple head wounds at Anne Arundel Medical Center and released yesterday. Heins was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore and treated for a single stab wound; he remained there in serious but stable condition.
