Newport Township, PA — A woman told police her boyfriend beat her with an alarm clock and a couple of folding chairs last week because she didn’t ask for permission to use the restroom.
Jarrett Edmonds apparently became “enraged” when the brazen woman dared to use the facilities without getting the nod of approval from his holiness. The girlfriend told police Edmonds beat her with a digital alarm clock before switching it up and arming himself with the chairs. He repeatedly struck the woman in the head, face and torso.
She went on to tell investigators that Edmonds held her hostage in the home for nearly an hour, denying her request to leave or call an ambulance. At some point, he reportedly tried to force the woman to stand outside naked just to embarrass her. Edmonds eventually relented and allowed the woman to go to a friend’s house to call 911.
The woman was left with various bumps and bruises, deep lacerations to her head and a broken nose. Two bloodied folding chairs and an alarm clock found at the scene were bagged and tagged as evidence.
Jarrett Edmonds, 28, was booked on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, false imprisonment, harassment and disorderly conduct. He is being held at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility in lieu of $75,000 bail.Tags: aggravated assault, disorderly conduct, Domestic Violence, false imprisonment, Harassment, Pennsylvania, simple assault
