A Johnstown woman has been charged with felony aggravated assault after police say she filmed herself brutally attacking a 12-year-old girl. Authorities say 32-year-old Emily Sarver is facing charges related to aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and corruption of minors. According to the Richland Township Police Department, the investigation began in Oct. 2019 when the girl reported the assault to her school nurse.
Police say the video of the attack confirmed the same details the girl described to investigators.
Sarver waited for the girl to enter the living room at which point she began beating the girl in the head and face with her hands and a wooden spoon for about seven minutes while berating her with vulgar language, the complaint says.
The video shows Sarver grab the girl by her hair, throw her on the ground and continue assaulting her, the complaint says.
