A Bradford man who was charged with aggravated assault and other charges in 2018 was found guilty of all counts during a trial Tuesday in McKean County Court.

Grant D. Lewis, 48, of Bradford, was found guilty by a jury after a two-day trial, said McKean County District Attorney Stephanie Vettenburg-Shaffer.

Lewis was convicted of strangulation, a second-degree felony; aggravated assault, a first-degree felony; two counts of simple assault, second-degree misdemeanors; and two counts of summary harassment.

“The charges stemmed from an investigation into the defendant’s actions against a female at two locations in Bradford City,” Shaffer said. “The case was investigated by Sgt. Todd Erickson of the Bradford City Police.

Shaffer prosecuted the case on behalf of the Commonwealth. Public Defender Philip Clabaugh represented Lewis.

Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 29.

Court records filed at the time of his arrest last year alleged that Lewis hit a woman in the face several times; When she tried to leave, he pushed her to the floor, began choking her and pushing her nose, then kicked her in the side of the head and ribs.

At Bradford Regional Medical Center, medical professionals found that among her injuries was a right orbital floor fracture in her skull, court records stated. She was transported to the Hamot Medical Center trauma unit for facial surgery to stabilize her fracture.
