VIENNA, Ohio (WYTV) – A Cortland man is being held in the Trumbull County Jail on charges that he beat a woman and dumped her in the road near a business in Vienna.
According to police, a witness told them they saw Patrick McKelvey, 23, of Cortland, and a woman fighting Saturday afternoon in the parking lot of Diamond Oilfield on Warren-Sharon Road. The witness said both people got into a pickup truck and when the truck took off down the road, the woman fell out.
Police tracked down McKelvey’s truck to an address on Warren-Sharon Road where he had stopped, blocking the road. McKelvey was not in the truck, but police found him in a backyard where he was arrested.
McKelvey was arraigned Monday in Girard Municipal Court on assault and domestic violence charges. He pleaded no contest and is due back in court May 25.
