Three charged in break-in, assault

NEW CASTLE — One man is wanted and two were arrested following an assault Friday on the East Side.

New Castle police have charged Jason J. Disalvatore, 37, of 109 Angela Lane, Union Township, Jeremy Perine, 36, of 1112 Summit St., and Dwight Short, 29, of 2150 Boyd School Road in connection with the 2 a.m. incident.

A Cunningham Avenue resident told police the three men and two unknown women who are still at large went to her house to beat up her boyfriend.

She told police she thought she had heard a gunshot outside, then the three men kicked at the door and screamed to be let in.

She said she pleaded with them to leave and as she walked into the living room, they kicked in the door and entered the kitchen. She said they began beating up her boyfriend and as she tried to break up the fight, Disalvatore pistol-whipped her and pushed her to the ground.

Another person in the house also was pushed to the ground and beaten, she told police.

The woman said Disalvatore pointed a gun at her boyfriend and the other two men kept beating him up. Then the two women and two men left, but Disalvatore was there when police arrived.

Perine was arrested later in the morning.

Police said they found a 9 mm handgun with five live rounds and one in the chamber in the house, which they believe was used in the attack.

Disalvatore is charged with burglary, criminal trespass, terroristic threats, conspiracy to commit burglary, conspiracy to commit trespass, conspiracy to commit terroristic threats and two counts each of recklessly endangering another person, conspiracy to commit recklessly endangerment and four counts each of simple assault and conspiracy to commit simple assault.

Perine faces one count each of burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary, criminal trespass and conspiracy to commit criminal trespass, two counts of simple assault and eight counts of criminal conspiracy to commit simple assault.

Short is charged with burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary, criminal trespass and conspiracy to commit criminal trespass, and four counts each of simple assault and conspiracy to commit simple assault.

Disalvatore and Perine were arraigned by District Judge David B. Rishel, who set Disalvatore’s bond at $15,000 and Perine’s at $5,000.

Short was still at large Friday and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
