Schuylkill man jailed for assault
A Schuylkill County man was jailed on Saturday, March 26, following a domestic incident at his residence.
State police at Frackville said troopers were called to 416 E. Oak St., Frackville, West Mahanoy Township, about 11:30 p.m. for a domestic disturbance. Troopers said Wesley Grubb, 33, and his 23-year-old girlfriend, not identified by police, became involved in a verbal argument that turned physical.
Grubb allegedly struck the victim and made verbal statements that threatened her safety. She received minor injuries in the incident but did not require immediate medical attention.
Grubb was taken into custody and charged with simple assault, harassment, recklessly endangering another person and terroristic threats. He was arraigned by duty District Judge David Plachko, Port Carbon, and committed to the county prison in Pottsville after failing to post 10 percent of $20,000 bail.
