Police allege the assault began when Howard punched one of the women, 27, in the head.

Howard allegedly fled the scene, while the two women went to a neighbouring residence and called police.

One of the alleged victims is in an intimate relationship with Howard after meeting recently online, according to The Daily Telegraph.
