SNYDER TWP – Charges of assault and harassment have been filed against a Jefferson County man after he allegedly injured a woman’s arm and spit in her face.

State Police say 34-year-old Joseph Shields of Corsica was arguing with the victim at a house on Route 219 in Snyder Township, when the verbal argument turned physical.

According to court documents, Shields shoved the woman while she was getting out of the shower and she reportedly fell against a vanity and cut her right arm.

Shields is currently free on $10,000 bail.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
