Police looking for assault suspect

TYRONE — State police are looking for a man they say assaulted a woman in Snyder Township over the weekend.

James A. Martin Jr., 35, no known address, is suspected to be in the Altoona area with an unknown female, state police at Hollidaysburg indicated on Monday.

Martin is wanted on a domestic violence-related simple assault charge stemming from an alleged incident Sunday on South Fifth Street in Grazierville where Martin allegedly threatened a woman with a gun.

According to state police, Martin and the woman got into an argument about 6:30 p.m. Sunday and at one point, Martin threatened her with a gun. Police said Martin told her he had a gun and shoved an object that was in fact not a gun into her abdomen. Martin then allegedly pushed the woman and fled the home.

Anyone with information on Martin’s whereabouts is asked to call state police at 696-6100.
