Woman is charged in separate incident Police: Man threatened to kill ex-girlfriend, new beau BY RYAN ROBINSON, Staff Writer
Police charged two people with aggravated assault after separate incidents in Lancaster city over the weekend.
Shortly before 3 p.m. Saturday, a woman frantically told a 911 dispatcher that her ex-boyfriend was trying to kill her with a knife, city police Officer Peter J. Velez II said in a criminal complaint.
Numerous officers responded to a home in the 300 block of East New Street, but the suspect had fled.
Niosvaldo Villalon-Cedeno, 25, of the 2300 block of Middlegreen Court in Manheim Township, had entered the East New Street home by breaking glass out of a rear side door, the complaint states. His ex-girlfriend had a protection-from-abuse order against him.
Villalon-Cedeno barged into her bedroom waving a blade while she was in bed with her new boyfriend, the complaint states. Villalon-Cedeno said he was going to kill them both, and he slashed the man's thigh with the blade, causing a small cut, police said.
Another man pulled Villalon-Cedeno away from the couple, but Villalon-Cedeno yelled that he was going to buy a gun and kill both of them, according to the complaint.
Prior to breaking into the house, Villalon-Cedeno had used garden stones to smash the windshield of the new boyfriend's truck. Damage was $298.95.
Velez charged Villalon-Cedeno with burglary, aggravated assault, two counts of terroristic threats, simple assault and criminal mischief. He was arraigned and committed to Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $100,000 bail, city police Lt. Todd Umstead said.
n Officers were called to another domestic disturbance just before 4 a.m. Sunday at a home in the 500 block of Church Street, city police Officer Michael Fisher said in a criminal complaint.
A 47-year-old resident told police that a female roommate, 21-year-old Lovemydarling Charles, had argued with him in a second-floor bedroom and then retrieved a knife from the kitchen downstairs.
A third roommate, a man, helped the 47-year-old by taking the knife from Charles before she could re-enter the man's bedroom, according to the complaint.
Charles then went back to the kitchen and got another knife, but the third roommate also took it from her before she could go back upstairs.
No injuries were reported.
Police took Charles into custody and charged her with aggravated assault. She was committed to county prison but was released Monday after posting $15,000 bail, a spokeswoman for District Judge Richard Simms said.
