A Boggs Township woman has been charged with a felony after allegedly striking a minor, police say.
According to the criminal complaint filed by state police at Rockview, a trooper responded at about 8 p.m. Saturday to the 200 block of Moose Run Road for a complaint of a domestic incident. The trooper reportedly spoke to an 11-year-old girl on the scene who claimed Nichole F. Breon, 31, had hit her “multiple times” in the face and body.
The trooper spoke with a second woman, reported by police to be the owner of the residence, who said Breon had come home intoxicated and hit the girl in the face. The woman consented to a search of the house, police said.
A search of Breon’s room revealed a bottle of pills not prescribed to her, police said, and an unknown white powdery substance. An interview with Breon reportedly “showed signs of severe intoxication which made her inadequate to care for her children.”
She was arraigned Sunday before District Judge Allen Sinclair, according to court documents, and charged with a felony count of endangering the welfare of children and misdemeanor charges of simple assault, reckless endangerment, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Straight monetary bail was set at $10,000 and she was taken to the Centre County Correctional Facility.
A preliminary hearing is slated for Oct. 11.
