Police: Man rammed wife’s vehicle in Penn Township

A Plum man is being held at the Westmoreland County Prison after police said he rammed his wife’s vehicle in Penn Township on Sunday, causing her to lose control and almost hit another motorist, according to court papers.

Robert Frank Stampo, 43, is charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats and related charges.

Township police said the car the woman was driving had damage from the rear to the passenger side door.

Officers were called to Denmark Manor Road at 4 p.m. The woman told investigators she was driving on Manor Harrison City Road when she was rear-ended by a vehicle driven by her husband, according to court papers.

Stampo allegedly hit her vehicle numerous times on Harrison City Export Road, nearly pushing her car into oncoming traffic, before she turned onto Denmark Manor Road and Stampo stopped following her, police said.

Authorities arrested Stampo at his home. He told a relative he was “playing bumper cars,” according to a criminal complaint.

Stampo was being held on $50,000 bail. He did not have an attorney listed in online court records. A July 9 preliminary hearing is set.

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.
