— An unidentified woman is in the hospital Tuesday night, her ex-boyfriend behind bars after a fight on the streets of Durham took an ugly turn.

Police say the man put a gun to the woman's head Monday afternoon, then rammed her face through a plate glass window. It all happened just feet from the Durham Courthouse. That's where the woman ran, leaving a trail of blood behind her after the attack.
