The woman then barricaded herself in the bedroom and placed a dresser in front of the door.
Vanhoft broke through the door, causing the dresser to fall to the floor. The girlfriend then fled the apartment by climbing out of a window, according to the Cobb County arrest warrant.
The warrant quoted witnesses who said the woman thought Vanhoft was going to kill her and then himself.
When approached by Cobb County police outside the building, Vanhoft removed a silver handgun from his pocket that he had reportedly stolen from the girlfriend immediately before the assault.
The loaded Smith and Wesson revolver and a Taurus revolver were found in the bushes approximately 5 to 10 feet from Vanhoft, according to the warrant.
An officer stated Vanhoft had been seen carrying the guns prior to being arrested.
Vanhoft was charged with four misdemeanors, including criminal trespass, carrying a concealed weapon, theft by taking and simple assault.
He was not released on bond.
