OC man charged with assault

An Oil City man is facing charges following a domestic incident Monday night at a home on Plummer Street.

A criminal complaint filed through district judge Andrew Fish’s office said police received a call for a possible dispute in progress at about 11:15 p.m.

Officers arrived on the scene and heard screaming coming from the residence, the complaint said.

One of the officers heard 40-year-old Clyde Miller say he was going to kill a woman and that he was going to go to jail that night, the complaint said.

Police made contact with Miller at the door with the woman, and Miller requested to be put in handcuffs and taken to jail, the complaint said.

Miller was placed in handcuffs while another officer noticed physical injuries to the woman, the complaint said.

It was later learned by police that Miller destroyed a bedroom door and threw pieces of the wooden door at the woman, causing injuries, the complaint said.

Miller was taken into custody and arraigned Tuesday morning by Fish on misdemeanors charges of simple assault and terroristic threats.

He was placed in the Venango County jail after failing to post $125,000 bail.

A preliminary hearing has been tentatively scheduled for Sept. 21 in Central Court.
