State College man charged after domestic incident reported

A reported assault Wednesday night has landed a State College man in Centre County Correctional Facility.

Patton Township police responded to a Vairo Boulevard apartment at about 11:50 p.m. after being contacted by a woman who reported that Christopher Marchsteiner, 26, punched her in the face during an argument, police said.

Police think alcohol was a factor and said Marchsteiner smelled of alcohol and appeared intoxicated.

Police said the woman was bleeding from her nose when they arrived. She was taken to Mount Nittany Medical Center for treatment of a possible broken nose and orbital fracture.

Marchsteiner was arraigned Thursday morning before District Judge Leslie Dutchcot and charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment. Bail was set at $30,000. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Feb. 25.
