BELLEVUE, Pa. (AP) - Police say a man punched a suburban Pittsburgh officer who was sitting in a parked police cruiser then yelled “Black Lives Matter” as he was taken into custody.
Twenty-three-year-old Domenick Hoy has been jailed on aggravated assault, resisting arrest and other charges pending a preliminary hearing April 7.
Bellevue police say Hoy was running and screaming toward the officer’s car as it was parked across from the police station on Thursday night. When the officer rolled down his window to ask Hoy what was wrong, police say the Bellevue man punched the officer, breaking his nose.
Online court records don’t list an attorney for Hoy.
Bellevue is a tiny borough just west of Pittsburgh.
