Both parties in a domestic incident in Schuylkill County were cited.
State police at Schuylkill Haven said troopers responded to 30 Hilltop Mobile Home Park, North Manheim Township, about 7 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 24, for a reported domestic assault.
Upon arrival troopers were met by Lisa Gilbert, 38, who said Keith Staller, 41, had pushed her onto a couch during an argument and punched her in the head and face area numerous times causing a laceration with swelling and bruising on her right eye. Gilbert said the incident occurred about 6 p.m. but she did not report it until her mother arrived to pick her up.

Troopers said both were taken into custody and charged with simple assault.
