SMETHPORT — An Eldred man has been charged for an alleged assault on a woman at his residence last month.

Timothy Justin Vaughn, 38, of McCrea Brook Road, is charged with indecent assault and simple assault, second-degree misdemeanors; and harassment, a felony.

According to the criminal complaint, on Oct. 6, state police were called to Vaughn’s residence where people could hear a woman screaming for help. The female victim was transported to Bradford Regional Medical Center, and told police that Vaughn had groped her and bit her hand. Police said her body had several bruises and abrasions, along with a bite mark, the complaint alleged.

Vaughn was arraigned Wednesday before District Judge Bill Todd and released on $2,000 unsecured bail. He is scheduled to appear in Central Court Nov. 21.
