CURTIS MATHEW PIERCE
NEW BETHLEHEM, Pa. (EYT) – A New Bethlehem man allegedly shoved a woman into a chest freezer on Thursday night during a domestic altercation.

According to court documents, the New Bethlehem Borough Police Department filed criminal charges against 38-year-old Curtis Mathew Pierce, of New Bethlehem, in Magisterial District Judge Jeffrey C. Miller’s office on Friday, January 18.

The charges stem from a domestic dispute that occurred on Penn Street in New Bethlehem Borough around 10:21 p.m. on Thursday, January 17, 2019.

According to a criminal complaint, Officer Hawk and Chief Malnofsky, of the New Bethlehem Borough Police Department, responded to a report of a physical domestic on Penn Street.

Upon arrival, yelling could be heard coming from the residence. A woman was observed holding a bag of frozen pierogies to the right side of her face. The frozen bag was wrapped in a towel, and blood was on the towel, the complaint states.

The victim explained to Officer Hawk that the children had gone to the dentist earlier in the day, and she and Curtis Pierce had an argument regarding the visit.

The victim stated that Pierce “shoved her causing her to fall to the ground striking her face off the chest freezer and an unopened Pepsi bottle causing a laceration to her right eyelid and a laceration to the upper part of her nose,” the complaint states.

According to the complaint, the victim refused to give a written statement and did not want to press charges. She also refused medical treatment. Photos of the victim’s injuries were taken.

Pierce refused to answer any questions; however, he said to ask them to the victim, the complaint indicates.

Based on the victim’s injuries, Pierce was arraigned at 12:10 a.m. on Friday, January 18, in front of Judge Miller on a second-degree misdemeanor charge of Simple Assault.

Unable to post $1,000.00 monetary bail, he was lodged in the Clarion County Jail. He was released at 1:05 p.m. on January 18 after posting a cash bond.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 1:45 p.m. on Tuesday, January 29, with Judge Miller presiding.
