FRANKLIN, Pa. (EYT) – A Franklin man is facing charges after he allegedly threatened to beat a woman to a bloody pulp.

According to court documents, the Franklin Police Department filed the following criminal charges against 37-year-old Shawn Michael Chambers, of Franklin, on Monday, June 17:

– Terroristic Threats W/Intent To Terrorize Another, Misdemeanor 1
– Disorderly Conduct Engage in Fighting, Misdemeanor 3
– Disorder Conduct Hazardous/Physi Offense, Misdemeanor 3

According to a criminal complaint, around 9:56 p.m. on Friday, June 14, Lieutenant Campbell, of the Franklin Police Department, was dispatched to Arbor Circle for a report of a male breaking bottles on the ground and attempting to kick in an apartment door.

Lieutenant Campbell arrived on the scene and spoke to a known victim who stated that her ex-boyfriend, Shawn Chambers, had just left her apartment.

The victim stated that Chambers had been calling her, and she would not answer the phone as they were separated. She stated that he then showed up at her apartment and began yelling and accusing her of sleeping with teenage boys. She told him that he needed to leave and to take his belongings that she had put outside in a storage area, according to the complaint.

The victim reported that Chambers then smashed a Captain Morgan bottle on the porch and cut his hand. She said that she gave him a paper towel to put on his hand, and at this time, he put his foot in the doorway so she could not close it. She managed to get the door closed, and Chambers began to kick the apartment door and was yelling that he would “beat her to a bloody pulp and beat her in front of everyone,” according to the complaint.

The complaint states that the victim was transported to Franklin Police Department where an emergency PFA (Protection From Abuse) was granted by Judge Fish.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. on July 17 in Venango County Central Court with Magisterial District Judge Matthew T. Kirtland presiding.

A certified summons was issued to Chambers on June 18.
