A Titusville man is facing charges for allegedly assaulting a woman during an argument in Troy Township.
Shawn Mathew Rodgers, 37, is facing two misdemeanors and a summary offense for the alleged assault on Wednesday. He was arraigned Thursday before Magisterial District Judge Samuel Pendolino, acting for Magisterial District Judge Amy Nicols.
According to the affidavit, police responded to a call of a domestic assault on the 30000 block of Crowther Road around 4:15 p.m. Wednesday. Police met with a woman, who said she was arguing with Rodgers when he allegedly grabbed her by the neck and said he was going to kill her. The woman began screaming, whereupon Rodgers reportedly let go of her and left the residence, running to a neighboring home down the road, according to the affidavit.
Rodgers is facing one first-degree misdemeanor count of terroristic threats, one second-degree misdemeanor count of simple assault, and a summary offense charge for harassment. If convicted of all charges, he faces up to seven years and 90 days in prison as well as fines totaling $12,300.
Rodgers is not currently being held in jail, bail in the case having been set at $5,000 unsecured. A preliminary hearing before Judge Pendolino is scheduled for June 4.
