Johnstown Man Assaulted with a Bat

A Johnstown woman is facing charges for attacking a man with a wooden baseball bat Friday, police say.

Police say they were called to a home on D Street after a 911 hang-up.

When they arrived at the home, they say they saw 24-year-old Kali Jackson screaming at a man from her porch.

They say Jackson had a brush burn type injury on her arm and explained that the man had shoved her but then continued to argue with the man while being uncooperative with authorities.

Police say the man was visibly injured too, so both he and Jackson were taken into custody to be questioned.

The man told officers that Jackson had accused him of cheating and then began beating him with a baseball bat in the arms, legs, and back to the extent that the bat was broken, according to police.

Police noted that the man had visible injuries and they suggested he get his arm x-rayed because it looked deformed.

The man told police he shoved Jackson to defend himself after she began hitting him with the bat.

Jackson has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, simple assault and terroristic threats.

She is free on unsecured bail.
