Harrison man headed to trial on assault charges
A Harrison man was ordered Wednesday to stand trial on assault and other charges in connection with a July 31 incident in which police said he beat a woman inside their Walnut Street home.
Dominic Pelligrini, 43, faces a felony charge of aggravated assault and misdemeanor counts of simple assault, disorderly conduct and harassment. He was returned to Allegheny County Jail after failing to post $25,000 bond Wednesday following a preliminary hearing.
According to a criminal complaint filed in the case, the alleged victim’s 16-year-old daughter hit Pelligrini with a baseball bat so she and her mother could escape the house.
The complaint said the woman had swelling and bruising to her head, face and right eye.
Pelligrini was treated at Allegheny Valley Hospital for a head wound following his arrest.
