Police: Woman beaten by boyfriend

A domestic disturbance with his girlfriend landed Lejer Lawrence Webb in the Lycoming County Prison on charged of simple assault and harassment, city police said.

Webb, 34, of 332 Lyons Ave., is alleged to have grabbed Andrea Sartori’s hair and thrash her head around, police said. Webb also punched her in the mouth and threw her to the floor during the disturbance at the couple’s home about 8 a.m. on Tuesday, police alleged.

Jailed automatically on a probation violation, Webb later was arraigned before District Judge Gary A. Whiteman and recommitted in lieu of $10,000 bail.
