A Bethlehem woman is accused of beating a man with a metal pipe after she said he tried to kiss her pre-teen daughter.
On Wednesday night, Shantika Briley cornered the 39-year-old victim in her living room in the 600 block of Atlantic Street, and accused him of licking her daughter’s lips and trying to kiss her, city police said.
The 35-year-old Briley then attacked the man, hitting him in the face and head, police said. The police report says Briley hit the man with a metal pipe, but Briley told lehighvalleylive.com that she did not use a pipe, just her fists.
Officers were called for the assault at about 8 p.m. and found Briley and the man at his home. The bleeding man was taken to a hospital for treatment of his injuries; on the way to the hospital he lost consciousness, police said.
