Schuylkill man jailed for assault
A Schuylkill County man was jailed over the weekend for assault and other counts following a domestic incident.
State police at Frackville said troopers were called to 40 Main Blvd., in Brandonville, East Union Township, about 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, for a domestic incident. On scene troopers determined that Daniel John Wylie, 43, of Ringtown, and a 43-year-old female, engaged in a verbal argument.
The argument turned physical when Wylie grabbed the woman by the arms and pushed her down on a couch in the living room of the home. He held her down and pulled her hair and punched her in the area of her right eye causing an injury. He also threatened to kill her.
Wylie was taken into custody and charged with terroristic threats, simple assault, and harassment. He was arraigned before District Judge Christina Hale, of Frackville, and committed to the county prison in Pottsville after failing to post 10 percent of $25,000 bail.
