Penn Twp. teen punches dad during fight over candy

Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012, 12:01 a.m.
 

A teen accused of stealing and hiding his younger sister's Halloween candy allegedly punched his father repeatedly during a confrontation, police said.

Township police arrested Christopher McGeary, 18, of 501 N. 14th St., following the Nov. 7 incident. McGeary allegedly threatened his father and said, “If you swear at me again, I'll punch your face out,” according to an affidavit of probable cause.

McGeary then began punching his father, causing a nose bleed, a laceration and swelling, according to police. Gregory McGeary, whose age was not available, was treated at an undisclosed hospital, police said.

Christopher McGeary is charged with simple assault and harassment. A preliminary hearing before District Judge Helen Kistler is scheduled for Dec. 11. He is free on $10,000 unsecured bond.
