A Rostraver Township man was sent to prison Monday for contacting the woman he allegedly punched last month after breaking into her North Belle Vernon apartment.

Myles “Butchy” Liston, 37, of 323 Bedsworth St., Pricedale, had his unsecured bond revoked Monday morning by Magisterial District Judge Charles Christner in West Newton and was sent to Westmore-land County Prison.

Liston purportedly violated terms of his bond by calling the alleged victim, Amanda Walch, 36, of 540 Broad Ave., according to North Belle Vernon acting police Chief Eugene Lipari.

Police accused Liston of kicking in a door around 4 a.m. June 16, entering Walch's hallway and knocking her unconscious with a punch to the face. Police said they found Walch unconcious on a couch later that morning with a large red mark and swelling on her left cheek.

Following an investigation, Liston was arrested June 25 at his residence on charges of burglary, criminal trespass, aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment, harassment and criminal mischief. Liston was arraigned via video that evening before Magisterial District Judge Charles R. Conway of Export and set free on $10,000 unsecured bond.

One condition of the unsecured bond was that Liston have no contact with Walch, who had purportedly told police the two had been lifelong friends.

According to Lipari, Liston showed for his preliminary hearing Monday without an attorney. Walch also appeared at Christner's office, Lipari said.

Lipari said it was revealed to the judge that Liston had purportedly called Walch, so Christner revoked Liston's unsecured bond and sent him to jail.

Christner then continued Liston's hearing until 10:30 a.m. July 21.
