Gilpin woman assaulted outside nursing home
An ex-boyfriend allegedly used a ball bat to assault a 22-year-old Gilpin woman on Tuesday night outside a nursing home where she works, police said.
Harmar police on Wednesday arrested Kevin Maurice McCallum, 39, whose last known addresses were in Tarentum, Arnold, New Kensington and Evergreen Road, Gilpin, according to court records.
He is being held in the Allegheny County Jail on charges of aggravated and simple assault, reckless endangerment and possession of an instrument of crime, court records show.
Harmar police could not be reached for comment.
Police said the victim is a nursing assistant at Harmar Village Care Center off Freeport Road. She was on a break, standing with two other employees in a smoking area at the facility in the 700 block of Freeport Road.
Police Chief Jason Domaratz said the trio were preparing to go back inside shortly before 11:30 p.m. when the one-time boyfriend, who was dressed in all black, came up to them.
"He hit her in the face, hands, arms and legs," Domaratz said.
The victim was taken to UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh.
A condition wasn't available there yesterday, but police said they have been told the victim was being treated for head injuries, a shattered knee cap and broken arm.
Harmar Village administrator Greg Hall confirmed the victim has been an employee for "several years."
The incident didn't directly involve the facility and there was no risk to anyone in Harmar Village Care Center, he said.
