Waverly woman arrested in Bradford County
A Waverly woman wanted by village police for her role in a domestic incident was recently located and arrested in Bradford County, police said.
According to information from village police, Angeleen Marie Buiniskis, 30, was arrested by Pennsylvania state police as a fugitive on charges stemming from the Waverly incident, which sent a male victim to Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre.
Waverly police charged Buiniskis with first-degree assault, endangering the welfare of a child, fifth-degree arson and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, police said.
Police said warrants were issued for Buiniskis' arrest after she engaged in an altercation with the victim at her village residence. Buiniskis reportedly placed butane fluid on the victim and lit the fluid with a lighter. Buiniskis then fled the residence, police said.
The victim was treated at the hospital for second-degree burns and released.
According to information filed in Bradford County magisterial district court, Buiniskis was arrested Monday in Franklin Township by state police at Towanda and charged with receiving stolen property, a second-degree felony, in addition to being taken in on the warrants.
Buiniskis was arraigned Monday by Magisterial District Judge Timothy Clark and remanded to the Bradford County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail, according to court information. Buiniskis is scheduled to appear before Judge Clark April 17 for a preliminary hearing.
Buiniskis will be extradited back to New York at a later date, according to Waverly police.
