Towanda man charged with intimidation of victim
Rusty Wayne Campbell, 51, of Towanda has been charged with victim intimidation, terroristic threats, simple assault, and harassment following an Oct. 11 incident at his home, police said.
During the incident, Campbell started slapping and punching his girlfriend, Tracy Trainor, in her face and right arm, police said.
Immediately after his 15-year-old daughter called 911 to report his behavior, Campbell slapped his daughter's left ear, causing it to redden, police said.
State police said that after they investigated the incident, they told Campbell that he was going to be cited for two counts of harassment and that he was to have no contact with the two victims.
Nevertheless, Trainor told police that, later that day, Campbell began to shove her and slap her again as she was trying to get an emergency PFA and that he took the phone from her several times.
Trainor also told the police that Campbell said he was going to kill her, according to the state police at Towanda.
Campbell was arraigned by Wysox Magisterial District Judge Fred Wheaton. Campbell was then sent to the Bradford County jail in lieu of $35,000 bail.
Campbell must appear before Towanda Magisterial District Judge Timothy Clark on Nov. 6.
