A Plum man smashed a car into a Washington convenience store and punched his ex-girlfriend in the face today, township police said.

David Cass, Jr., 23, showed up at the BP Fueland on Route 380 to find that the store's clerk, Amber Lewis, had locked the doors, according to a Washington Township police press release.

Mr. Cass backed up and rammed into the convenience store doors, sending glass flying across the parking lot.

Mr. Cass got out of the car, walked into the store, and punched Ms. Lewis, 21, in the face and "slammed her head off the ground" before leaving, according to the release.

Police said Mr. Cass drove by the convenience store while they were still investigating. They spotted and arrested him without incident.

Police said he was "very cooperative" and "talkative about things other than what he did."

He posted 10 percent of his $5,000 bail in cash and was released from the Westmoreland County Prison, according to online court documents.

He is charged with aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, criminal mischief and burglary.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 15.
