NEW CASTLE — A Mahoningtown woman is facing charges for allegedly beating another woman during an argument.

Dawn Lynn Feeley, 27, of Apt. 5, 210 N. Liberty St., is accused in connection with the incident.

A 24-year-old West Side woman told police she had been walking on Liberty Street with a friend around 8 p.m. Oct. 1, when she heard a couple arguing on the porch of a nearby apartment building.

She said she looked over at the couple, whom she did not know, and the woman, later identified as Feeley, saw her and yelled obscenities at her and called her foul names.

The younger woman said she yelled back and Feeley walked off the porch and hit her repeatedly on the left side of her neck and forehead. She said the woman also had struck her head off the pavement.

Police Monday charged Feeley with simple assault and harassment. She was sent a summons to appear in court.
