The police are looking for a man who allegedly threatened his ex-girlfriend with a meat cleaver, after breaking into her apartment.

The Post reports, "Damion Jackson, 41, smashed the fire escape window of the Astoria apartment near 24th Avenue and 31st Street about noon Sunday, then threatened to kill the woman, 39, and her 24-year-old son, cops said. After terrorizing the two, Jackson put down the weapon and fled the apartment on foot, authorities said."

According to the Daily News, "The former couple has a history of domestic disputes, a police source said. Police were called in the past and reports were taken, but it never escalated to the point of a court-issued order of protection, the source added."

Jackson is described as being 6'2" and around 220 pounds. Anyone with information is urged to contact NYPD Crimestoppers.
