Fox Township, PA – An Elk County man is facing charges after police say he forced his way into a home and fought with a woman.

26-year-old Anthony Dornish from St. Marys is accused of arguing with a woman on Saturday at a home on Toby Road in Fox Township, near Brockport.

He allegedly forced his way into the home, grabbed the victim by her throat, and slammed her onto the floor. The victim also says he prevented her from leaving by holding her down on the couch.

Dornish fled from the scene before police arrived. They put out a warrant for his arrest, and he was eventually taken into custody the next day at the Sheetz in Ridgway on unrelated charges and warrants.

Dornish remains in the Elk County Jail after failing to post bail.
