Man charged with raping woman Nov. 10 at home
SHENANGO TOWNSHIP – A Shenango Township man has been charged with rape for assaulting a woman Nov. 10 at home, Southwest Mercer County Regional police said.
Edward M. Vincent, 31, pushed the victim against a wall, put his hands around her neck and threw her to a bed, police said. He held the woman’s arms above her head during the assault to prevent her from resisting and bit her on the chest, police said.
Senior District Judge William L. Fagley, Farrell, held the charge for court at a preliminary hearing Nov. 26.
Vincent is in Mercer County Jail after failing to post bond.
Judge clears park critic of most charges
HERMITAGE – A critic of Buhl Farm park officials and their policies on wildlife was convicted of one charge but found not guilty of three others at a recent summary trial.
Glenn W. Siminick, 60, of 662 Seventh St., Sharpsville, was found guilty of disorderly conduct for fighting with Roy Hamor, 50, of 634 Seventh St., May 1 at the Hermitage park after Hamor told Siminick to stop feeding ducks, police said.
Siminick was found not guilty of a charge of harassment, and police withdrew the same charges they had filed against Hamor.
Senior District Judge William L. Fagley, Farrell, presided over a summary trial Nov. 21. He found Siminick not guilty of two counts of defiant trespass for being in the park June 16 and Sept. 22 after park officials had told him he had been banned.
Fagley fined Siminick $100 and costs on the disorderly conduct charge.
Siminick has repeatedly criticized park officials for their handling of waterfowl and has fed the birds in defiance of park policy.
Last winter, he predicted the park’s two swans would be hit by cars if not managed more closely, and his prognostication came true June 15, when an adult pair was hit by a car while crossing Forker Boulevard. The driver of the vehicle has not been identified.
Park officials in September bought a new pair of adult swans.
