| August 14, 2019

ASHLAND TWP., Pa. (EYT) – An area man who allegedly struck a woman with a wooden board waived his preliminary hearing in court on Tuesday.

According to court documents, the following charges against 54-year-old Larry Martin Beers of Cranberry were waived for court on Tuesday, August 13:

– Simple Assault, Misdemeanor 2
– Harassment – Subject Other to Physical Contact, Summary

The charges have been transferred to the Clarion County Court of Common Pleas.

Beers remained free on $2,500.00 unsecured bail.

The charges stem from a domestic assault that occurred in June at a residence on Whitehill Road in Ashland Township, Clarion County.

According to a criminal complaint, around 10:21 p.m. on Friday, June 21, Trooper Gray of the Clarion-based State Police was dispatched to a location on State Route 208 in Shippenville for a report of a domestic incident that occurred earlier at the same location.

The victim reported she was engaged in a verbal argument with Larry Beers that escalated into a physical altercation during which Beers struck her once in the face with a fist, two times on the leg with a small board, and once in the arm with the same board.

The complaint notes the victim sustained an injury under her right eye from the punch and another injury on her right arm caused by the board.

Beers was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Amy Long Turk at 2:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 22.
