An arrest warrant was to be issued for Adam Vallozzi, 33, on charges of aggravated assault and harassment by Greensburg District Judge James Albert.

Vallozzi struck the guard in the head and face several times, police said.

The guard had blood on his teeth and lower lip and numerous red marks on his face, police said.

Earlier, Vallozzi had been arguing with his girlfriend, police said.
