EAST SPENCER — Police arrested a Salisbury man who was wanted following an alleged May 12 domestic assault involving his three young children and their grandmother.

Erick Jose Santos, 22, was charged on Sunday with felony breaking and entering, misdemeanor interfering with emergency communications, misdemeanor assault on a female, felony larceny from a person and misdemeanor injury to real property.

Police said the victim, who was the grandmother, called police to say the father of her grandchildren arrived at the home and there was a violent encounter. The father allegedly walked through an unlocked front door, was upset and allegedly threw their belongings including a laptop. Santos was angry about damage to his vehicle, police said at the time.

Police said he tried to keep the grandmother from calling 911 during the incident, but she was later able to call 911 from a neighbor’s home.

Santos reportedly shoved the grandmother to the ground and took the phone. He grabbed one of the children and took off with the child, according to police. The mother later arrived at the home and told police she and Santos were no longer in a relationship. Santos returned the child home later.

In other arrest warrants:

• Joshua Adam Abbott, 35, of the 400 block of Clark Road, was charged on Sunday by Salisbury police with felony possession of a schedule II controlled substance (methamphetamine), misdemeanor second-degree trespass (McDonald’s, 704 E. Innes St.).

• Dillon Ray Jackson, of the 13100 block of Old Beatty Ford Road, Rockwell, was charged with felony breaking and entering a motor vehicle and misdemeanor second-degree trespass. According to the warrant, he broke into a 2007 Dodge Charger SE. The vehicle was parked in the 1100 block of Zion Church Road, Gold Hill.
