NANTICOKE — A city man was arraigned Tuesday on two arrest warrants, alleging he assaulted his on-again, off-again girlfriend in front of a young girl.
Police say Timothy Michael Comoroski, 32, forced his way inside a West Noble Street residence Nov. 19 and assaulted Jolene Bullock. Comoroski is also accused of assaulting Bullock on Jan. 2.
According to criminal complaints:
Bullock told police she and Zachary Hallas were helping her daughter with homework Nov. 19 when Comoroski forced his way inside the residence and began yelling. She claimed Comoroski assaulted her when Hallas left the room.
When Bullock attempted to call police, she claimed Comoroski ripped the phone from her hand and left the house. She told police Comoroski had not lived at her residence for a month prior to the incident.
The girl remained in the kitchen while Comoroski assaulted Bullock.
An arrest warrant was issued for Comoroski on Nov. 21, charging him with burglary, robbery, theft, simple assault and harassment.
On Jan. 2, Comoroski returned to Bullock’s residence and again assaulted her in front of the girl.
Officers were met at the door by the girl who stated, “He hit my mommy. She’s bleeding from her nose.”
Comoroski ran out the back door when police were at the front door.
An officer went to the rear of the house where Comoroski ran away and eluded capture.
Bullock told police Comoroski struck her during an argument and he wouldn’t let her and her daughter call 911.
An arrest warrant was issued Jan. 5, charging Comoroski with simple assault and harassment.
Comoroski was arraigned by District Judge David Barilla in Luzerne County Central Court on the charges listed in the arrest warrants. He was jailed at the county lockup for lack of $10,000 total bail.
