Donora man calls police to report assault, ends up being charged
A Donora man is accused of assaulting a woman and spitting blood on a police officer Sunday.
Carmen Namie Jr., 26, of 400 Chestnut St., Apt. 4 is charged with aggravated harassment by a prisoner, simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
Namie called police around midnight to report he had been assaulted, according to a criminal complaint. Donora police Officer Michael Parry stated Namie had “visible injuries” on his face, and appeared to be intoxicated.
Parry stated in the complaint that he saw blood around the front porch area, sidewalk and street near Namie's residence.
Namie allegedly told Parry he was attacked by a girl he knew only as “Jump,” while at a friend's house in Monessen.
Namie reportedly said the girl punched him multiple times in the face and then ran when he told her he was calling the police, the complaint states.
Namie could not describe his alleged attacker, Parry stated.
Namie allegedly became “verbally aggressive,” with police and emergency medical personnel who were evaluating his injuries inside an ambulance, police said.
Despite Parry's warnings, Namie reportedly continued his “swearing and rants,” the complaint states. After the evaluation, Namie was taken to the Donora police station.
Inside a holding cell, Namie allegedly continued using profanity and then spit saliva and blood on borough police Officer Rob Dorcon, police said.
During the investigation at Namie's residence, police were called to 65 Highland Terrace by Siida Murtaza. Police said Murtaza had blood and injuries on her face.
Murtaza allegedly told police that while she was at Namie's residence she and Namie got into a verbal altercation.
Murtaza said Namie pushed her, struck her and knocked her down the stairs, the complaint states.
Murtaza told police she grabbed Namie as she was falling down the steps in an attempt to stabilize herself. They both ended up falling down the steps, resulting in additional facial injuries to Murtaza and Namie, the complaint states.
Namie was taken to the Washington County Correctional Facility on an adult probation parole detainer. A preliminary hearing has not been scheduled.
