Police are searching for a man who punched a 24-year-old woman and hit a 21-year-old woman with a 10-foot metal pipe in front of children at a home in the 2300 block of Johnson Avenue.

Police said the man and older woman were inside arguing at 8:45 p.m. when the man punched her several times. The younger woman came in to defend the older one, and the man went after her, smashing a glass over her head.

The women tried to get the man out of the house, and ended up on the front lawn. That is where the man grabbed a pipe and hit the younger woman in the head and arm, and almost threw a brick at her. He then fled, police said.
