Frackville man facing assault charges

State police at the Frackville barracks charged Joshua Maley, 25, of Frackville, with simple assault and harassment after an incident March 1 in Frackville.

Police said he and a 23-year-old woman from Mahanoy City were in an argument that turned physical, with Maley allegedly striking the woman with an open fist in the face.
