A Fayette County man has been charged with assault because he allegedly fought and forced three men from his Dunbar Borough property.

Dunbar Borough police responded to an assault call from Chris Hamborsky along Fayette Street at 8:51 p.m. March 26.

Hamborsky told police he and his girlfriend were involved in an argument, and she took their baby to her parents' residence to baby-sit while she went to work.

The girlfriend's father, Keith Wayne Basinger, 54, of 134 Seton Hill Road then arrived at the residence he owns, ran inside screaming for Hamborsky and Hamborsky's friend and cousin to get out, according to the criminal complaint.

Basinger then physically assaulted the three men and forced them out of the residence, police said.

Hamborsky told police that he was punched in the face several times, grabbed by the shirt and eventually thrown off the porch.

Basinger screamed at Hamborsky, “If you come back here, I'll kill you,” according to the complaint.

Eventually Hamborsky was able to get away and drove to his parents' house, where he called 911.

When police asked why Hamborsky didn't call 911 while the incident was happening, he responded, “It happened so fast. Keith kept coming at us. We were all scared and just wanted to get away from him and leave.”

Police reported Hamborsky had muddy clothing, a swollen lip, red marks on or near his throat area and a bloody nose.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for 10 a.m. May 28 before District Judge Dwight Shaner.
