A Greensburg man was charged Wednesday with assaulting a security guard in Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital in the city.

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 punched the security guard early Tuesday morning, police said. The guard tried to block Vallozzi, who was in the hospital on an involuntary mental health commitment, from leaving his room, authorities said.

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.
