KEITH-CHRISTOPHER-GIRVANSHIPPENVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – A hearing is scheduled for tomorrow for a Shippenville man who allegedly told his father he is a “dead man” and punched him in the face multiple times.

According to court documents, 49-year-old Keith Christopher Girvan, of Shippenville, is scheduled to stand for a preliminary hearing in front of Magisterial District Judge Timothy P. Schill at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 2, on the following charges:

  • Aggravated Assault, Felony 1
  • Aggravated Assault, Felony 2
  • Terroristic Threats With Intent To Terrorize Another, Misdemeanor 1 (two counts)
  • Simple Assault, Misdemeanor 2 (two counts)
  • Recklessly Endangering Another Person, Misdemeanor 2 (two counts)
  • Harassment – Subject Other to Physical Contact, Summary (two counts)

Girvan is currently lodged in the Clarion County Jail on $40,000.00 bail.

According to a criminal complaint, around 8:11 p.m. on Tuesday, March 19, Keith Girvan assaulted his mother and father at a location on Oakwood Lane in Paint Township, Clarion County.

The complaint indicates that approximately 15 to 30 minutes prior to the assault, Girvan allegedly called his parents’ house and told his father that “he was a dead man” and then showed up at the residence and barged in at the side door.

It is alleged that Girvan began punching his father. He was allegedly holding a kitchen knife in his hand at the time. His mother then came down the hallway and attempted to intervene, and Girvan is accused of striking her as well, according to the complaint.

Following the assault, Girvan left the residence.

The complaint notes that Girvan’s father suffered injuries to his entire head and face area, including multiple cuts on his face along with several lumps and bruising. He also had marks and cuts on his hands. Girvan’s mother had a mark under her eye and a mark on the side of her face, as well as cuts and marks on her hands.

Girvan was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Jeffrey C. Miller at 10:45 p.m. on Tuesday, March 19.
