Court documents indicate the Brookville Borough Police Department filed criminal charges against 22-year-old Mason Andrew Ishman and 18-year-old Hailey Elizabeth Goodwill, both of Brookville, on Saturday, March 11, in Magisterial District Judge Gregory M. Bazylak’s office.

According to a criminal complaint, Brookville Borough Police were dispatched to an apartment on Jefferson Street in Brookville Borough for a domestic incident in progress on March 11 around 12:58 p.m.

The responding officer requested Jefferson County Control to send another unit as he had a person in custody for an unrelated incident. While responding, officers were informed that one party of the incident was at Brookville Borough Police Department and the second party was still at the residence.

An officer met with Hailey Goodwill at Brookville Police Department, as well her father, the victim. Goodwill provided police with a written statement of events, reporting that Ishman was out of control and choked, bit, and struck her multiple times, the complaint states.

Goodwill reported that she was able to flee and contact her father, who arrived and met with Ishman, the complaint indicates.

Ishman then reportedly struck Goodwill’s father in the face, causing a minor injury, the complaint notes.
