According to court documents, the Oil City Police Department filed criminal charges against 20-year-old Amber Domres in Magisterial District Judge Andrew F. Fish’s office on November 16.

The Oil City Police Department received a phone call from a known female on Friday, October 14, stating a known man is laying on her bed and bleeding from an assault that just took place at a residence on Hone Avenue in Oil City, Venango County.
