Karvel Swaby, 37, of 1226 W. Fourth St., has been charged with simple assault and harassment after allegedly beating her ex-boyfriend with a phone during an argument Saturday in the city.
In the early hours of Saturday morning, city police were dispatched to Swaby's residence for a report of a domestic fight in progress.
Police met with the victim, who was not named in the affidavit, outside of the residence. As the man spoke, officers noted that he was "bleeding heavily from the top right of his head," according to court records.
The man explained that he and Swaby used to be in a relationship.
During an argument earlier in the evening, Swaby allegedly hit the man repeatedly in the head with a telephone.
She then allegedly continued pushing and striking the victim with her hands. Eventually he was able to flee outside, police said.
While the victim spoke, officers noted that the man's wounds were continuing to bleed. He was transported via ambulance to the Williamsport Regional Medical Center, where he received additional treatment, according to the affidavit.
According to police, Swaby admitted that she and the man had argued and confessed that she had hit him with the phone and her hands.
In the course of the investigation, police learned Swaby was on state parole for a previous aggravated assault charge. She was arrested and taken to Lycoming County Prison, where she was committed under a parole detainer.
Swaby was arraigned before District Judge James G. Carn on Monday morning. She remains incarcerated in lieu of $8,500 bail.
