DUBOIS – A Cresson man has been charged by Pennsylvania State Police with burglary and assault for allegedly barging into a residence and threatening the occupants.
Scott Allen Stasik, 26, was charged with burglary, criminal trespass, simple assault, disorderly conduct, harassment and criminal mischief after an incident Oct. 6 in Brady Township.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, the victim told officers that she answered her door at 2:30 p.m. to see her ex-boyfriend, Stasik.
He forced his way into the house by pushing the front door open and pushing her out of the way. He allegedly yelled to her new boyfriend, that he “was going to kill him.”
The second victim said he was standing by the front door with a baseball bat and struck Stasik in the face with it. He then put Stasik in a choke hold to control him. Stasik then reportedly bit him in the left bicep area.
They both stood up and the victim pushed Stasik out of the house. Stasik came back shortly after he was told to leave and pounded on the door, yelling he was going to “expletive kill” the second victim, according to the report.
When the victim told him the police were coming, he left the front porch but allegedly punched the front window, causing it to break.
Stasik’s preliminary hearing had been scheduled on Friday but was continued until Oct. 20 during centralized court at District Judge Pat Ford’s office.
