A Monessen man was charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend in an incident earlier this month.
The Tribune-Review says 33-year-old Jonathan Minniti was charged Monday with simple assault, harassment and disseminating obscene photographs in connection with an incident on October 9th. Police say that the victim confronted Minniti about pictures she had sent to his cell phone being shared with one of his friends, despite telling her that he deleted them. During the argument, Minniti allegedly assaulted her, and when she tried to open the door of a car, he took off, and started to drag her.
A preliminary hearing is set for December 21st.
