A Parks woman is accused of grabbing her husband's crotch and pulling him from one room to another in their house, state police said.

Daina Lyn Barr, 39, of the 1100 block of Hungry Hollow Road, was charged for the alleged incident that happened in the couple's house at about 2 a.m. on Sept. 29.

According to an affidavit, a trooper was sent to the home for a domestic disturbance. As a result, the Valley News Dispatch is not identifying the victim by name.

In the statement, the alleged victim said the two had been at a bar earlier in the evening. The man told police that when they got home, they got into an argument over how Barr had allegedly acted at the bar.

The woman “started to get irate,” the affidavit said, and the man locked himself in the bedroom. After she beat on the bedroom door, he opened it and she grabbed his crotch, “twisted ... and dragged him out of the bedroom, down a hallway and into the living room.”

Police said the man sustained lacerations, but did not say if he required medical treatment.

Police say Barr left the house prior to the arrival of the troopers.

Police charged her with simple assault and harassment. She later surrendered and posted bond on Oct. 1.

A preliminary hearing in the case is slated for later this month in Leechburg.
