A York County man who allegedly mooned his girlfriend after assaulting her and breaking a door with a baseball bat before fleeing last month has been arrested.

James Allen Broome, 39, allegedly stood at a door with “His pants pulled down,” and “his bare buttocks” at the screen door, a police report said of the Feb. 1 incident in rural Catawba in York County.

Broome is charged with indecent exposure, domestic violence, assault and battery, and malicious damage to property and is jailed under a $7,712.50 bond, jail and police records show.

Broome had fled the house and although he was tracked by K-9 and officers was not arrested until this week when he turned himself in, reports show.

Broome’s girlfriend and her mother alleged Broome threw the girlfriend to the ground and destroyed a door after attacking both of them, the police report states.
