A 26-year-old Trumbauersville man was charged with simple assault Wednesday after allegedly punching a woman repeatedly in the face at about 2 a.m.

State police at Dublin said Matthew Hangey, 26, of the first block of Main Street got into an argument in an apartment at 6 Main St. with the victim, Michelle Jones, 30, who lives on the same block.

Police said Hangey became violent and punched Jones in the face several times in another apartment on the block. The victim, who suffered minor injuries, fled the apartment and called 911. Police did not say whose apartment it was.

Hangey was arraigned by District Court Judge Robert Roth in Quakertown and sent to Bucks County Prison under 10 percent of $5,000 bail.

This has nothing to do with race.

I read the paper here just like everyone else and this paper has shown more than enough low life white locals to prove that whatever shade of beige you happen to be can't predict criminal behavior.

Judge John Domalakes sentenced Barrett's killer, Joseph A. Cress, 43, of Girardville, to eight years and four months to 16 years and eight months in state prison for third-degree murder.
Barrett's family wanted Cress to serve much more time. Assistant District Attorney Allyn Starry asked Domalakes to give Cress the maximum 20- to 40-year sentence the law allows for third-degree murder.
''I feel the time doesn't fit the crime,'' Waschek said as tears rolled down her cheeks.''We can never get Roseann back.''

A 14-year-old boy was charged Thursday with attempted homicide over a stabbing in Bath early Wednesday.

Sammy Buskirk, 14, of 347 S. Green St., was charged with attempted homicide, aggravated assault, riot, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person, said Northampton County Assistant District Attorney Janet Hay Subers.

Colonial Regional police said earlier this week the victim had been stabbed three times during a fight that broke out shortly after midnight among about 15 people in the 300 block of S. Green Street.

Of the attempted homicide charges, Subers said Buskirk, whose birthday is Aug. 5, would have been charged as an adult automatically under Pennsylvania law if he were 15 years old. She said charging him as an adult is still possible.

''There's many factors that go into consideration for that process,'' Subers said.''It's too soon to know if we would do that or not.''

Subers said Buskirk remains in the custody of Northampton County juvenile authorities. She identified the victim as Sean Lombardi, 18, no address given.

Colonial Regional Chief Roy Seiple said both groups of combatants were residents of Bath and have a history of feuding. He said police believe the most recent incident was over a girl that a member of one of the groups dated several months ago.

Lombardi was stabbed once in the back and twice in the arm and remained at St. Luke's Hospital-Fountain Hill. Seiple said Wednesday the injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

Lisa Marie Haas sobbed and apologized today and assured a Northampton County judge her days of giving alcohol to children are over.

"It will never happen again," Haas, 45, of 4318 Timberline Road, Lehigh Township, said.

"I know it won't," Judge F.P. Kimberly McFadden said. "The answer to kids who are bugging you for alcohol is no."

The judge sent Haas to the county jail for one to 12 months, fined her $500, ordered that she undergo a drug and alcohol evaluation and random screenings, attend four Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings a week and remain on the prescribed medication she takes for an unspecified mental-health condition.

McFadden also told Haas she is not allowed to have alcohol in her possession.

Haas in May pleaded guilty to a single count of furnishing alcohol to minors. She had given her 16-year-old son a bottle of vodka on Sept. 14. One of her son's friends, also 16, came to the house and shared the vodka. The friend, whose name is not included in court records, got drunk, took a sport utility vehicle that belongs to Gerald Weiner, whose address is the same as Haas', and crashed it.

The boy's blood-alcohol level was 0.11 percent. A person under 21 is considered impaired when the level reaches 0.02 percent

There's probably 100 people that know where this guy is. Remember, the gutter dwellers of Allentown adhere to the idiotic "code of the streets", also known as "snitches get stitches". Until the PR community rebukes the violence and mayhem they have reaped on Allentown, they will not get the respect they demand.

"A Group of men bothered Rivera for money." Hummm... ok a group of men in a Allentown bar on the 4th of July and into the next day. What would a group of "men" (no race given) be bothering another "man" (Rivera, assumed race is hispanic) for in a bar for a long period of time. Guess number #1) Gang member not giving his cut of drug money. Guess #2) Drug user not paying debts. Guess number #3) Reyes, the "sister" ( huge air quotes because we have no idea if that is true) is lying. Or Guess #4) And oldie but a goodie, Gang member/Drug abuser involved in illegal activities gets killed and the so called "sister" (once again air quotes) lies about the whole situation.
Why else would they be after him? It's all about the drugs. People today do NOT just go around jumping others at random. They know who they want and they get who they want. It was NOT an accident with this guy that got killed. Why was he shot in his country and came here after that? Maybe he came here to try and make a change for the better, But got caught up in the same sh*t here. That's probably why he didn't bother with his family. Usually when a person is on a mission with drug use they don't bother with family. Because they are so caught up in getting that high time flies and it would be many months to go by before they may call a family member. Unless they are in trouble and need something. But you did hit the nail on the head! No one is stupid. We all know why this happened. PEOPLE PLACES AND THINGS!! All have to change in order to stay away from the gangs, drugs, and crime!!And then all of a sudden when they get killed it's poor this and poor that. Come on. Maybe when he was straight and younger but not as long as they keep doing these illegal things! Why would he have Money If he was crippled from being shot,assuming not working,on some kind of disability,How much money could he possess unless dealing in illegal activities. I agree with you totally!!
