Police: Reynoldsville Residents Face Charges After Woman Breaks into House, Man Assaults Her

REYNOLDSVILLE BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – Two Reynoldsville residents are facing criminal charges following an incident in which a woman is accused of breaking into a house, and a man allegedly assaulted her.

According to court documents, the Reynoldsville Borough Police Department filed criminal charges against 41-year-old Jeremy Dean Wineberg and 37-year-old Kristy Lynn Wineberg, both of Reynoldsville.

According to a criminal complaint, around 3:15 p.m. on September 30, Chief Bell and Sergeant Murray, of the Reynoldsville Borough Police Department, were dispatched to a residence on Hill Street for a report of a domestic incident.

According to the complaint, as they proceeded to the scene, they found Kristy Wineberg walking down Hill Street with blood running from her forehead, right leg, and left arm. When asked what had occurred, she reported that her estranged husband, Jeremy Wineberg, threw a flower pot and hit her on the forehead. She also admitted that she slapped him on the face.

The complaint notes that K. Wineberg had potting soil in her hair and on her clothing.

When asked what had started the incident, K. Wineberg reported that she and her husband had been separated for awhile, and she was staying with her mother. She said she attempted to call her husband to see if he was going to be home when their daughter got off the bus, and when he did not answer, she went to the house to wait for her daughter. However, when she got to the house, she noticed a car parked out front and knocked at the door. She said J. Wineberg then locked the door, so she could not get in, and she saw that he had another woman in the house, according to the complaint.

K. Wineberg allegedly admitted to police that she then went around the house to a window that had been broken out during a previous domestic incident and was covered by a board. She went into the house through the window, cutting her leg and arm on the broken glass in the process, the complaint states.

According to the complaint, K. Wineberg stated that J. Wineberg then punched her on the head several times. She noted that the other woman went out the front door. K. Wineberg also said she attempted to go upstairs “to get makeup” and noted that J. Wineberg then threw a flower pot at her and hit her on the head, at which point she slapped him on the face.

The officers then interviewed J. Wineberg.

According to the complaint, he reported that K. Wineberg, who had not lived at the residence since January, came and knocked on the door. He stated that he did not want her there, so he locked the door and noted that when K. Wineberg saw someone else in the house with him, she got upset and began trying to force her way into the house.

He told police that K. Wineberg tried getting in through the front and back doors by damaging both doors with a metal pole before going around to a window that had been broken during a previous incident and forcing her way past the board blocking the window and into the house. He noted that he tried to stop her from coming in by forcing the board back at her, and said once she was inside, she began to throw things around. He said that was when he called the police and went to his vehicle to wait for them to arrive, the complaint indicates.

Charges were filed against both Kristy Wineberg and Jeremy Wineberg through Magisterial District Judge David B. Inzana’s office on October 1.

Kristy Wineberg faces the following charges:

– Criminal Trespass-Break into Structure, Felony 2
– Harassment – Subject Other to Physical Contact, Summary

Jeremy Wineberg faces the following charges:

– Simple Assault, Misdemeanor 2
– Harassment – Subject Other to Physical Contact, Summary

They both remain free on $5,000.00 unsecured bail each.

Preliminary hearings are scheduled for 2:15 p.m. on October 29, with Judge Inzana presiding.
