MT LEBANON, PA — Police have arrested a man after he was accused of beating his 4-month-old daughter to death because she would not stop crying.

On Sunday, 30-year-old George Gazzam called 911 to report he was watching his 4-month-old daughter while her mother was at work, and that the child wasn’t breathing.

Emergency crew members arrived at the home and found the Victoria Gazzam unresponsive. She was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead an hour later.

Gazzam initially told police that he was watching Victoria after the girl’s mother left for work that morning. A few hours later he changed the girl’s diaper and fed her baby formula before taking a nap together.

When he woke up, he found the baby had fallen off the bed and was face down on the floor and unresponsive. An autopsy would reveal the girl had suffered injuries inconsistent with a two foot fall on to a carpeted floor.

Victoria had bleeding of the brain, a lacerated heart vessel, a lacerated left kidney, a liver contusion, three fractured ribs, multiple bruises to the back and head and a hemorrhage behind the eyes.…

NEW HOLLAND, PA – Police arrested a man after he threatened to kill a Wendy’s employee during an argument over the number of cucumbers in a salad.

The incident happened Sunday afternoon after 50-year-old Theodore Gunderson Jr. was served the salad he’d ordered from a New Holland Wendy’s.

Gunderson was not happy with the number of cucumbers in his salad or, more specifically, the lack of cucumbers in his salad.

Enraged, Gunderson allegedly cursed at the restaurant employee’s over the slight, then threw the salad in an employee’s face while stating, “If I had a gun or knife, you would be the first to go.”

The threatened employee called police to report the incident and to say he was in fear for his life – especially since the man was sitting in his vehicle in the parking lot.

When police arrived at the location and confronted Gunderson, he initially refused to roll down his window or exit his vehicle as instructed. When he finally did roll down the window, he put his key in the car’s ignition after being informed that he was being arrested.…

LANCASTER, PA – Two children are in the hospital after a pit bull attacked them inside a minivan on a residential street.

A 5-year-old pit bull broke through a fence, got inside a minivan, and attacked a 2-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy as they sat in their car seats.

A witness said he tried to help the mother get the dog off the children, but didn’t have much luck.

“We’re just pulling, and it’s raining, so it’s a slimy dog, pulling, we get it off once, and we’re yelling at the mom to get the kid and shut the door, it slipped away, and it pounced on the kid again,” witness Tom Grab said.

Another witness stated the dog was not attacking any of the adults who were trying to pull it off the children, and was only interested in attacking the kids.

“We fought the dog and it just was still attacking, and still attacking, and it wasn’t attacking the adults, it was attacking the babies,” Marsha Jones said.…

JOHNSTOWN, PA — The start of a couple’s marriage got off to a rocky start when the groom allegedly choked his new bride during an argument over wedding gifts.

According to a police report, 31-year-old John DeLozier began choking his new wife after returning home from their wedding.

The couple had received some cash and, according to the victim, DeLozier became enraged because she wanted to put some of the money away instead of spending it.

That’s when DeLozier said she only cared about the money and started to attack her. DeLozier was arrested and charged with simple assault, harassment and strangulation — a new felony charge created to address choking someone during a domestic dispute.

He was still in the Cambria County jail on Tuesday after being unable to post 10 percent of his $40,000 bail.

If the victim has any brains, she’d bail out immediately. She probably won’t, but that almost guarantees another story about the couple in the future so, whatever.

Despite choking his wife on their wedding day, this couple got off easy when compared to other wedding day disasters we’ve featured over the years.…

PHILADELPHIA, PA – A PHL 17 reporter has been fired after video surfaced of her going on a cringe-inducing tirade outside of the comedy club she had just been kicked out of.

On Sunday night, 28-year-old Colleen Campbell was with friends at the Helium Comedy Club to see Craig Robinson (Darryl from The Office).

However, she was asked to leave the venue for talking loudly during the show. Once outside, she began berating the club’s employees as well as the cop that had been called to the scene.

Initially, all the cop wanted was for Campbell to walk her drunk ass away. But Campbell decided to stick around and scream in the cop’s face. She wasn’t arrested until she mock spit into the face of one the club’s employees.

At that point the cop, who displayed a superhuman amount of patience, put her in cuffs and placed her in a police car. Police say Campbell kicked the officer multiple times after being taken into custody and kicked the doors and windows of a police car.…

PHILADELPHIA, PA – An 18-year-old has been accused of trying to strangle his 7-year-old sister to death while high on K2.

He then left the girl on the floor of the basement before demanding his mother hand him her car keys before driving off.

When police arrived at the home after the mother called about her son stealing her car, she went in to get her vehicle registration and was told by her 14-year-old son that the girl was missing from her bed.

“They began a frantic search of the house. The mother went into the house at that point in time. She found her 7-year-old daughter unconscious on the floor,” Philadelphia Police Captain Mark Burgmann said.

She removed the bag and carried the girl outside to police who immediately administered CPR in an attempt to revive her. They were successful and she was rushed to the hospital were she remains on life support.…

MONTCO, PA — A Pennsylvania man is in jail after being accused of abusing his two children for years, using a variety of different methods that included beatings, needles, and a dog shock collar.

The abuse came to light after the wife of 44-year-old Joseph Myhre was admitted to the hospital with a broken skull. During their investigation into the injury, police interviewed the couple’s two home-schooled children… and man, did they have a story to tell.

According to Myhre’s 11-year-old daughter, she had been abused by her father since she was around 5-years-old. The abuse consisted of being hit with sticks or PVC pipes, strangulation, having her head beat on the ground until she entered a “dream state,” having her fingers squeezed with pliers, needles stuck in her fingers and toes, and being for shocked with a dog shock collar.

Her 13-year-old brother echoed the same thing, claiming he was kicked in the stomach, hit on his feet with a stick until he bled, and had a dog shock collar used on his stomach and legs.…

BUTLER, PA – Police have arrested a 20-year-old man for the rape and murder of his girlfriend’s toddler.

Last Tuesday, police were called to a business on a report of an unconscious child in a car. When they arrived, officers found 43-year-old Kristen Herold with 4-year-old Bentley Miller, who was bleeding and unresponsive.

Herold told police she had picked the boy up from a Super 8 Motel where he lived with her son, 20-year-old Keith Lambing, and his girlfriend, 21-year-old Mackenzie Peters.

The couple also has a 4-month-old together, but Miller was not Lambing’s biological son.

Herold said she was taking Miller to his biological father when he fell unconscious. Miller was rushed to the hospital where he would be pronounced dead shortly after arriving.

Miller died of severe blood loss due to sodomy, and had bruises to the head, trunk and extremities that were consistent with the boy being forcibly held from behind. He also had a severe burn to his left hand that had not been treated.

Lambing was the only one watching the boy when he received his fatal injuries, and was charged with the rape and murder of Miller.…

Middletown, PA — A 41-year-old woman was arrested after police say she choked and beat her 13-year-old daughter because she had the audacity to recite a few bible verses incorrectly.

It appears as if someone is channeling Margaret White….

The child told police her mom, Rhonda Kemp Shoffner, who had been on a three day bender, ordered her to call multiple family members on the afternoon of March 14. When no one answered the child’s calls, Shoffner ordered her into the bathroom and demanded that the child get on her knees.

At that point, the girl said, she knew she was in for a beating. But no amount of begging or pleading helped.

Shoffner began reciting bible verses and expected the girl to repeat them, verbatim.

Shoffner asked her child, “What did God tell the man to do with his son?”

When the girl said she didn’t know, Shoffner said, “God told the man to kill his son.”

Instead, the girl said, “God said to forgive his son,” and Shoffner grabbed her by the hair and slammed her head into the wall, police said.…

CLIFTON HEIGHTS, PA — Police have arrested a daycare worker after she was caught on camera pushing a 4-year-old girl down a flight of stairs.

The incident happened Friday afternoon at the Child Care of the Future daycare, just minutes after a new surveillance camera had been installed.

A worker at the daycare was watching the camera’s live-feed when she witnessed 52-year-old Sarah Gable, a co-worker that has been at the center since June, assault the girl.

“Gable was seen struggling with the child prior to pushing her down the steps,” the arrest affidavit states. “After the child fell, Gable was observed grabbing her and continuing on.”

You can watch the video below, and the description above is pretty accurate. It was definitely intentional – as evident by the look on Gable’s face when she momentarily looks up at the camera.

Police were called and Gable, who has been working in the daycare industry for the last 25 years, was immediately fired.

Gable was taken into custody that same day on charges of simple assault, harassment that subjected another to physical contact and endangering the welfare of a child.…

LANCASTER, PA – Two children were rushed to the hospital with severe burning to the mouth and throat after drinking a caustic chemical at a Pennsylvania restaurant.

The incident happened on Friday while the family of Richie Zaragoza were celebrating the boy’s 10th birthday at the Star Buffet & Grill.

The apple juice that had been ordered for the boy and his 4-year-old half-sister, Ginaya Mendoza, were waiting on the table when the family got back from getting food at the buffet.

Ginaya took a sip from her cup and began throwing up and complaining her stomach hurt. The girl’s mother first thought her daughter had simply gotten sick, but then her son began screaming “it burns” and throwing up blood.

Both children were taken to Lancaster General Hospital with severe burns of the mouth and throat. They were then flown to Hershey Medical Center where they remained in intensive care Saturday afternoon.

Because Richie suffers from cystic fibrosis and diabetes, he has a gastronomy tube in his stomach and a port in his arm for IV medications and will be sedated for several days.…

Frackville, PA — George Beaver, 59, is in police custody for allegedly biting his wife’s face after she touched his bag of Utz Potato Chips.

Police were called to the Beaver’s home last week after receiving a report about domestic assault between George and his wife, Michelle.

When officers arrived on scene, Michelle reported that George was sitting in the living room watching television and that she just happened to pick up a bag of Utz Sour Cream and Onion rippled potato chips that had been sitting on the coffee table.

George apparently said something like, “leave the fucking chips alone.” (Could have been “goddamn chips”, too. Not positive which cuss word was used, so I’ll use my favorite).

Michelle did not leave the fucking chips alone. This angered the Beaver.

George reportedly grabbed Michelle by the face and bit her left cheek, just below the eye, tearing off a piece of skin and causing her to bleed.

George fled the home before officers arrived, prompting them to obtain a warrant for his arrest.…

Tarentum, PA — Police allege Teresa Drum, 38, shot and killed her husband after arguing about a casserole she’d burned, then snapped a quick pic of the body and texted it to a friend, before taking a quicky shower and calling 911.

When police and paramedics arrived at the couple’s home late Monday night, Teresa apparently attempted to convince them her husband, 42-year-old Dennis Drum Sr., killed himself.

Teresa claimed the two had argued over the charred casserole, and the fact that she had sucked down his last beer, and he just put a bullet in his head all on his own. She told police he did this as she was calling 911.

She showed police a picture of the body. She took the pic and texted it to a friend, she explained, because she didn’t know what to do. The friend apparently told her to call 911.

Heh. A good friend would have been over 15 minutes later with a shovel and a bottle of wine. Or a dead hooker.…
