UNHINGED HILLARY SUPPORTER MATTHEW PUGH HIT 69-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WITH A CHAIR IN A CONDO LOBBY BECAUSE OF ANTI-HILLARY, PRO-TRUMP REMARKS
Matthew Pugh, 27, was arrested on November 30 after attacking the elderly woman with a chair in the lobby of a high rise during a disagreement about politics.
The victim made a pro-Trump or anti-Hillary comment, sparking Pugh’s attack, according to the Observer-Reporter:
An argument over the recent presidential election in the lobby of a Donora high-rise apartment complex ended with a resident of the building hitting a 69-year-old woman over the head with a chair, police said.
Matthew Pugh, 27, of Donora Towers, 685 Meldon Ave., was arrested Wednesday on a warrant obtained by Donora police on charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment.
Borough police were called to the apartment complex Nov. 20. Witnesses told police that Pugh and the woman, also a Donora Towers resident, were in the lobby when they got into a disagreement about politics, particularly the recent presidential election.
Pugh reportedly became enraged. He allegedly picked up a chair and hit the woman over the head, knocking her to the floor. The chair opened a gash on her head that bled severely, police said. The woman also suffered other injuries in the fall.
The woman apparently made a comment either against Clinton or in support of Trump, sparking Pugh’s attack, said Charlton.
