arrestCLARION TWP., Pa. (EYT) – Charges have been filed against a man accused of intentionally shutting a woman’s hand in a door and punching her in the eye during a dispute in Clarion Township.

Court documents indicate the Clarion-based State Police filed criminal charges against 45-year-old Jason Mark Oakes, of Guys Mills, Pa.

According to a criminal complaint, on Tuesday, December 10, Trooper McGinnis, of the Clarion-based State Police, was dispatched to an apartment on Robinwood Drive for a report of an active domestic altercation.

When Trooper McGinnis arrived at the scene, he met with a known female victim who had blood on her shirt and on her left hand and bruising to her left eye area.

The victim reported that she and Jason Mark Oakes got into an argument which turned physical when Oakes intentionally shut her left hand in the front door, causing the skin of her hand to break and bleed, according to the complaint.

The victim said she then fell to the ground, and Oakes came up to her and struck her in the left eye with his closed fist, causing bruising, the complaint indicates.

The complaint also notes that when Oakes was in custody, he told police he was on various medications that he needed from inside the residence. While troopers were gathering his medications, they found three drug kits, each containing various drug paraphernalia.

Oakes was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Duane L. Quinn at 8:15 a.m. on Tuesday, December 10, on the following charges:

– Simple Assault, Misdemeanor 2
– Use/Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor
– Harassment – Subject Other to Physical Contact, Summary

Unable to post $5,000.00 monetary bail, he was lodged in the Clarion County Jail.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 17, with Judge Quinn presiding.
