40-year-old John Hitchcock actually broke into the Fisher Court home twice, according to papers filed in District Judge Dominic Cercone’s office, but no one was home the first time. The second time he pushed the victim’s house mate out of the way to get into the house and started fighting with her.
At one point, he threw her to the floor, got on top of her and punched her. She told police her head and the right side of her body hurt. She later went to the BRMC Emergency Room for treatment.
Hitchcock is charged with burglary, assault and harassment.
