Creekside, PA – A man who formerly lived in Punxsutawney and now lives in Creekside is facing hundreds of charges after an investigation revealed years of alleged abuse against a woman and two children.

36-year-old Dana Cessna is accused of choking, hitting, and throwing a 10-year-old girl, 14-year-old boy, and 33-year-old woman from 2013 to this year, at least once a week. Much of the abuse happened at a home near Punxsutawney.

Although Cessna originally claimed that he was never on drugs when the abuse happened, the woman says that he would cook and use meth.

She and the children are in a safe home now.

The case is listed as inactive and is waiting on a preliminary hearing.
