MONTGOMERY TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A Hilltown woman heads to Montgomery County Common Pleas Court on felony burglary, misdemeanor assault and harassment charges for allegedly smashing down a locked door, and hitting and scratching the face of her boyfriend, police said.
Jade Alexandra Martelli, 24, of the 200 block of Mill Road, was charged by Montgomery Township Police for the Nov. 26, 2013 incident on the 600 block of Bethlehem Pike, shortly after 9:30 p.m., according to an affidavit.
Martelli is free on $25,000 unsecured bail, after waiving all charges to trial at a preliminary hearing in Montgomery Township District Court Wednesday, according to court records.
Police responded at 9:36 p.m. Nov. 26, 2013 to a report of a disturbance at the address.
An unknown man stated, "Send the police," to a county emergency radio dispatcher, and then hung up, police said.
Upon arrival, police found the alleged victim in the second-floor office of the building, police said.
The front door of the office had been smashed off its hinges, police said. A large chunk of the door jamb was laying on the floor.
The interior of the office told another story: There was a struggle, police said, evident by paperwork and office items thrown about the place.
The alleged victim told police he was working in his office, when his girlfriend, Martelli, knocked on the locked exterior door, police said, and demanded to speak with him.
The man refused and told her to go away.
Then, Martelli allegedly smashed the door open with her body, according to the affidavit. Martelli completely destroyed the door jamb in the process, police said.
She then allegedly struggled with the man, kicking him and scratching his entire face, police said. The alleged victim had cuts and redness to his face, police said.
It didn't stop there, police allege. Martelli then ripped two phones out of the wall to prevent the man from calling 911.
Martelli fled the office, and the man was able to call 911 on his cell phone, police said.
Montgomery and Hilltown township police departments apprehended Martelli at her father's home in Hilltown police said, "pursuant to probable cause domestic violence arrests, as well as burglary," police said.
Martelli pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor DUI offenses, a purchasing alcohol by a minor charge, and careless driving in January 2010 in Hilltown Township, Bucks County, per Bucks County court records. She was sentenced to 72 hours to six months in jail, with parole. Martelli also had to surrender her license and take highway safety classes, per court records.
Martelli was found not guilty of harassment in June 2011 in Montgomery Township District Court, according to court records.
