Man charged after elderly women assaulted
An Allegheny County man shoved an elderly woman at an Excela Health System facility in Greensburg, breaking her hip and wrist, according to court papers.
An arrest warrant has been issued for James Andrew Uhlmann, 24, of Bethel Park on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault and harassment by Greensburg District Judge James Albert.
Uhlmann pushed the woman around 3:30 p.m. on March 22 at the Behavioral Health Services building on North Spring Avenue, Greensburg police said.
A witness told police the woman, who is in her 80s, was with a relative when Uhlmann shut a door to the dining room.
The woman then attempted to open the door, and Uhlmann pushed her to the ground, according to a police affidavit. Staff then intervened.
She was taken to the hospital for treatment.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
