Dushore man accused of assaulting woman with knife, fire poker
A Dushore man was recently charged with aggravated assault after he allegedly assaulted a 44-year-old woman with a knife and kept her from leaving the residence they were in for two days, police said.
On Feb. 11, the victim told police that 33-year-old Arthur Charles Everly Jr. assaulted her with a knife and a fire poker at a residence on Connells Lane in Dushore, police said.
The woman told the state police that Everly also punched and kicked her and would not let her leave the residence for two days, according to the state police at Laporte.
The victim "finally left the residence to report the assault when (Everly) fell asleep," according to a press release issued on Friday by the state police at Laporte.
Everly was then arrested for aggravated assault and related offenses and placed in the Montour County jail in lieu of $25,000 bail, police said.
The incident occurred between 8 a.m. on Feb. 9 and 9 a.m. on Feb. 11, police said.
Besides aggravated assault, Everly was also charged with terroristic threats, simple assault, and harassment, according to court records.
"There were injuries" suffered by the woman, "but to what extent, we're not sure," a state police employee at the state police's Laporte barracks said Friday afternoon.
The victim is also from Dushore, police said.
