'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A Rockwood man was jailed Sunday after allegedly assaulting his mother on Saturday, police said.

Brandon Michael Jensen, 19, was arraigned before District Judge Sandra Stevanus on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault and harassment.

Jensen is accused of assaulting Mandy Marie Hay, 36, of Rockwood during a domestic dispute, state police said.

According to an affidavit of probable cause filed with Stevanus, Hay told police she and her son were involved in a physical altercation at a Rockwood residence.

Hay said Jensen shoved her in the chest, knocking her to the ground. As she stood up, Hay said, Jensen grabbed her and “body slammed” her to the ground.

Police said Hay suffered a “highly disfigured” injury to her right wrist. Hay was treated at Conemaugh Meyersdale Medical Center and released, a spokeswoman said.

Jensen remains in the Somerset County Prison in lieu of $2,500 bond. He faces a preliminary hearing Wednesday before Stevanus.
