Sewickley Police Investigate Possible Assault on Moon Man

Police say a Moon Township man was taken to the hospital after being assaulted.

Sewickley police are investigating the assault of a Moon Township man who was taken to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh for injuries he suffered from a possible attack in Sewickley.

Police were advised at 4:15 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10 by Allegheny County dispatch that a 40-year-old man was possibly assaulted at the American Legion on Chadwick Street.

Valley Ambulance medics advised Moon police that the man appeared to have been assaulted. Police said both of the man’s eyes were swollen and he complained that his face hurt.

Moon police couldn’t determine if the man drove home or was dropped off at his house.

He was taken to Heritage Valley Sewickley hospital, where police said the man was “very confused” about where he had been assaulted, first stating that it happened in Aliquippa, then in Moon Township, then Sewickley.

He also directed police to speak to his girlfriend in the waiting room, but there was no one with him, police said. Police obtained a telephone number for his girlfriend, but received no answer. Police said the man was transported to Allegheny General Hospital.

Sewickley police also responded to the following recent incidents. Each incident reflects police records and is not an indication of guilt.
