ENOLA, Pa. (WHTM) -
An Enola man is facing charges after police say he assaulted his wife with a baseball bat.
Curtis Alleman, 35, is charged with harassment and simple assault. Alleman is a non-participatory member of Northeast Fire and Rescue in East Pennsboro Township.***
East Pennsboro police say they were called to Holy Spirit Hospital around 5:44 a.m. Saturday in reference to a domestic assault.
Hospital officials told police the victim was being treated for back and shoulder injuries.
According to court documents, the victim told police she and her husband, Curtis Alleman, were going through a divorce.
Police say she claimed her husband showed up at the residence that she and a male friend were at. The victim says he began yelling at them with a metal baseball bat and swung at her, hitting her with the bat.
Officials say Alleman turned himself in later Saturday morning. He is now facing charges of harassment and simple assault.
Alleman is president of the Cumberland County Volunteer Firefighters Association, according to the organization's website.
