PUNXSUTAWNEY – Multiple charges of assault and child endangerment have been filed against a Punxsutawney man for allegedly hitting two young children.

Punxsutawney Police say 32-year-old Troy Keller is accused of abusing the two children of a woman he dated for a month, and even pulling one of the child’s hair out.

The victims’ mother claims Keller visited her home several times while they were dating and he would yell and scream at them, hit the two children, and leave marks on them.
