A Leetsdale man accused of hitting a woman in the face waived the charges to Allegheny County Court.
David Eiler, 30, of Broad Street, recently appeared in Leetsdale District Court on charges of simple assault, harassment and recklessly endangering another person.
According to Leetsdale police, Eiler argued with a woman on Nov. 26 before striking her in the face. Police said the woman was bleeding from her face and hand, and was transported by Valley Ambulance to Heritage Valley Sewickley Hospital.
Officers checked the home for Eiler, but he fled, police said. Police seized a sword belonging to Eiler, who is prohibited from possessing a weapon due to an active protection-from-abuse order on another person.
