Man jailed on accusation of assaulting ex-girlfriend in Penn Township
A 32-year-old Pittsburgh man remained in Westmoreland County Prison on allegations that he assaulted and threatened his ex-girlfriend at her Penn Township home.
Township police charged Marc R. Matsey with criminal trespassing, defiant trespassing, harassment, simple assault and making terroristic threats.
Officer Blake Danowski said he was summoned Monday afternoon to a residence along the 2000 block of Newton Street for a report of a man potentially threatening a female with a firearm.
The woman told police that Matsey had left the home before their arrival, Danowski reported in an affidavit of probable cause filed before Harrison City District Judge Helen Kistler.
The victim told police that Matsey entered her kitchen “uninvited ... flipped over the chair she was sitting in, causing her to strike her head off the kitchen countertop.”
According to Danowski, Matsey grabbed a laptop computer and allegedly struck the victim as she told him to leave.
Police allege that Matsey then went upstairs and retrieved two firearms that he showed her before he left.
Matsey was arraigned before Night Court Judge Jason Buczak and ordered to the county prison after failing to post $50,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled Dec. 26 before Kistler.
