A man from Middleburg was charged with assault after punching his girlfriend in the face several times, according to police.

Police were called to Kissimmee Road in Snyder County when Lance Wray allegedly started kicking and shoving his girlfriend on April, 23, according to the criminal complaint.

“(The victim) related that last night [4/23/17] approx. 2330 hours the defendant had been drinking heavily and she knew it was going to be a bad night because when he drinks heavily he becomes violent and abusive. (The victim) indicated that the defendant had been physically abusive twice prior since January that were not reported. (The victim) advised that during the alteration the defendant struck her twice in the face with a closed fist. In the morning her mother XXXXX saw that (the victim) had been assaulted by the defendant and called PSP,” read the criminal complaint.

Police claim that when they arrived at the scene the victim had “a swollen upper lip” that “was split on the inside of her mouth.”

But Wray told police a different story.

“The defendant related the had been ongoing issues with the victim, XXXXXXXX. The victim admitted he had a beer last night and had an additional one or two beers this morning, but that there was not physical alteration between parties,” read the criminal complaint.

Wray was charged with assault, and harassment.

A hearing will be held May 2, 2017 at Lori R Hackenberg 32 East Market st. in Middleburg.

    This story is pretty incoherent. If Wray punched his girlfriend, she’s the victim. He isn’t. I guess the XXXXX’s are placeholders for the names, which should’ve been removed when you decided to run the story without the names, for whatever reason. You consistently seem to publish stories without proofreading them first. That’s a mistake. Even the best writers need to proofread. Or, you could try getting an editor.
