N.J. man assaults female on way home from Mount Carmel bar
CATAWISSA - A New Jersey man was committed to Columbia County Prison after allegedly assaulting a female Saturday.
Abron S. Glover, 43, of 5 Kenneth Road, Upper Montclair, N.J., was charged with a felony count of aggravated assault, misdemeanors of simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and terroristic threats and summary violations of harassment and disorderly conduct by Locust Township Police Patrolman Joseph Samuels.
According to court documents, Glover and the victim, Elizabeth Kramer, were drinking at a Mount Carmel bar when Glover became angry because he thought other people were giving him looks at the bar.
Glover then told Kramer people were giving him looks because "he's black," but Kramer said no one was looking at him. Glover then became angry at Kramer because he thought she was siding with the rest of the bar. Kramer told police Glover was drinking double shots of whiskey and was intoxicated.
Police said the two left the bar to go to Kramer's home in Locust Township. During the drive, Glover punched Kramer, who was driving, in the face and body, put a lit cigarette on her right forearm and bit her, according to police. Glover allegedly threatened to kill Kramer and her two children. When they arrived at the Numidia Drive home, Glover exited the vehicle and Kramer left, driving to the Locust Township Police Station.
Police observed red marks and the burn on Kramer.
Glover was taken into custody and arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Craig W. Long, of Catawissa, and placed in Columbia County Prison on $50,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is set for Friday before Long.
