A judge ordered a 24-year-old Uniontown woman be held in the Fayette County Prison on charges of breaking through the front door of an apartment late Sunday and assaulting a man and woman inside.

Tea S. Kellam was arraigned before Uniontown District Judge Michael Metros on charges of burglary, simple assault, harassment, disorderly conduct and criminal trespass filed by state police in Uniontown in connection with the 10:22 p.m. assault in the Woodview Terrance apartment.

Police allege Kellam broke through the front door and assaulted a 23-year-old man, striking him in the face and body, then attacked a 24-year-old woman, striking her on the back of her head and neck with a closed fist.

Police did not report either victim required hospital treatment.

Metros ordered Kellam held in the county jail after she failed to post $20,000 bond, according to court dockets.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
