If he is damaging your property, it is no longer a civil matter and law enforcement can remove him.
You can file for a civil restraining order (here: http://www.courts.ca.gov/selfhelp-domesticviolence.htm)
This can be filed on Tuesday when the courts open and will prevent him from returning to your home.
AT THE SAME TIME: You can also initiate an eviction (use a 3 day notice to quit (ex. http://www.tsci.com/pdfs/form577.pdf) based on his damage to property)
For help with the eviction process: http://www.courts.ca.gov/selfhelp-eviction.htm
(So you can do all 3, call the police, file for a restraining order, and initiate an eviction. But you need to ensure that you start the eviction process to ensure that he is evicted from your home).
You should not be forced from your own home. If you are afraid for your own safety, please contact law enforcement.
