JEFFERSON CO., Pa. (EYT) – A Brockway man facing several charges included aggravated assault and kidnapping after allegedly smashing a woman’s head against a car window in front of her two children has waived his preliminary hearing and had the charges waived for court.
According to court documents, DuBois-based State Police filed criminal charges against 33-year-old Daniel Robert Holt, of Brockway after an incident in October.
According to a criminal complaint, at about 4:30 p.m., October 28, DuBois-based State Police were dispatched to Penn Highlands DuBois for the report of a domestic assault that resulted in the victim being thrown from a vehicle.
