Alleged Arnold kidnap, beating victim faces drug charges
A woman who accused three people of stripping and beating her last month in Arnold is facing drug charges.
Angel Mangol, 21, who stays in several locations in the Alle-Kiski Valley, is accused of having about 10 grams of methamphetamine and 13 heroin packets.
She was arrested Wednesday by Arnold police in the 1500 block of Equator Alley. She was formally charged and initially given medical release Thursday, pending a preliminary hearing. However, that bond was revoked for allegedly using heroin later that day.
She was in the Westmoreland County Prison on Friday in lieu of $50,000 bond, with a police request that she be kept away from the people she accused of beating and burning her with cigarettes after stripping her and tying her up in an Arnold basement.
Last month, Arnold police charged Michael Joseph Battaglia, 41, of 16th Street, Arnold; Stephanie Renee Unruh, 30, of Victoria Avenue, New Kensington; and Devon Hamilton, 25, of Clay Avenue, Mt. Pleasant, with felony kidnapping to inflict injury or terror, and aggravated assault.
Unruh posted bond but, as of Friday, Battaglia and Hamilton still were in the county jail.
According to court records, Mangol is scheduled to appear in court in February for a September 2016 charge of promoting prostitution in New Kensington.
In February, she served 26 days in the Allegheny County Jail for disorderly conduct. A drug paraphernalia charge was withdrawn.
In March, she was sentenced to serve 10 to 12 days in jail for promoting prostitution in New Kensington.
