OC man facing aggravated assault, stalking charges

From staff reports

An Oil City man is facing aggravated assault and stalking charges.

Oil City police said in a criminal complaint they were called to a Vo-Tech Drive address at about 2:50 p.m. Monday for a report that Antonya Campbell, 42, was stalking his ex-girlfriend at her workplace.

Police had also been called Thursday to the same address where Campbell was screaming and yelling at his ex-girlfriend, the complaint said. Campbell had been advised not to go back to her workplace or communicate with her, according to the complaint.

The woman said she was driving down Colbert Avenue on Monday to get away from Campbell, but he kept hitting the back of her vehicle with his vehicle while they were going down a hill, the complaint said.

This caused the woman’s vehicle to leave the road and go into a large clearing, the complaint said.

Campbell then tried several times to talk to the woman, but she said she didn’t want to be around him or talk to him, according to the complaint.

Campbell continued to pursue the woman in his vehicle and she eventually called police, the complaint said.

Campbell was charged with felony counts of aggravated assault and stalking and summary counts of harassment and careless driving.

He was arraigned Tuesday and placed in the Venango County jail, and his preliminary hearing is scheduled Jan. 4 in Central Court.
