OC woman charged for spitting on man who had been attacked

An Oil City woman is facing aggravated assault and endangerment charges in connection with an incident at a Hone Avenue home in which she is accused of spitting on a man who had been assaulted.

Oil City police said in a criminal complaint they received a phone call Oct. 14 from a woman telling them that a man was on her bed bleeding and couldn’t talk because he had just had been assaulted at the residence at 203 Hone.

Amber Domres, 20, spit on the man after he had been assaulted by four males in the house, the complaint said.

The complaint notes that Domres, who was present during the altercation, was responsible for two minors who were at the house and did not stop the fight from happening.

Jerome Barber, 19, fought the man in an upstairs bedroom of the home, punching him in the face and body, the complaint said.

When the man had fallen over and was trying to protect himself, Barber, Giovanni Paolucci, 20, and two other males “continued to punch and kick” the man in the face and head before they finally went downstairs and outside of the house, the complaint said.

Outside of the house, they made a comment to a witness to the effect that “your man” just got beat up, the complaint said.

Domres also made a comment to the witness asking if she would also like to get beat up, according to the complaint.

When police arrived at the residence they found a lethargic man on the bed with multiple injuries to his face who “clearly was assaulted,” the complaint said.

Domres has been charged with a felony count of aggravated assault — attempts to cause serious bodily injury or causes injury with extreme indifference as well as two misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of children.

She was arraigned Monday, and her preliminary hearing is scheduled Wednesday in Venango County Central Court.

Barber and Paolucci were both charged in October with felony counts of aggravated assault and conspiracy-aggravated assault in connection with this incident.

Barber, who is in the Venango County jail after being unable to post bail, was held for court on all charges at his preliminary hearing Nov. 16. Paolucci has not been arraigned.
