Murrysville man accused of striking woman

Saturday, April 13, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

Police charged a Murrysville man on Friday after they allege he struck a woman and threatened her.

Anthony Michael Thompson, 28, of Kemerer Hollow Road faces charges of simple assault, harassment, terroristic threats and recklessly endangering another person, court records show.

After a confrontation, the woman got into a parked truck and locked the doors trying to get away from Thompson, court records state. Thompson then “poured gasoline onto the vehicle and told her he would burn her out,” a police criminal complaint states.

Police allege that Thompson then struck the woman with her purse, grabbed her by the hair and dragged her across a driveway, causing a bruise and cuts to her face. He also threatened her, police said.

On Friday, Thompson was in Westmoreland County Prison on $75,000 straight bond.

He faces a preliminary hearing May 7 in front of District Judge Charles Conway. Court records do not list an attorney for Thompson.
