Police charge Salisbury man with breaking into ex-girlfriend’s apartment

Police have charged a Salisbury man with trying to break into his girlfriend’s Zion Hills Apartment a few weeks after she’d kicked him out.

Timothy Cordarius Sims, 27, of the 1600 block of Standish Street, is charged with breaking and entering, vandalism and domestic criminal trespass, all misdemeanors. Police also served a misdemeanor assault on a female warrant from May 7 involving the same victim.

The victim told police Monday she heard the front doorbell ring, but looked and didn’t see anyone. She then heard her back doorbell ring. A man she said was her ex-boyfriend said the two needed to talk. She refused and closed the door. He kicked the door and the victim called 911.

According to reports the two argued over rent. He punched her, and she told him to leave. However, she allowed him to return two days later. Sims denied the victim asked him to leave and not return.

Police said he left the area Monday and was found at Old Wilkesboro Road and Grim Street.

He remains in the Rowan County Detention Center without bond for the domestic incident and $1,500 for breaking and entering.
