DECATUR — An angry husband chased his estranged wife around her boyfriend’s car Saturday night before punching the boyfriend in the head multiple times, police said.

Sgt. Brian Earles with Decatur police said the 25-year-old husband was being sought Sunday on charges of aggravated battery and vehicular invasion. Earles said the boyfriend, 25, suffered a “swollen knot” on his head and bruising above his left eye; he had been punched five or six times as he sat in the car. The estranged wife was not listed as being injured.

Earles said the boyfriend had driven her over to the husband’s house in the 1900 block of North Gebhart Court “to get some money” when the incident happened about 8:30 p.m.
