A Stroudsburg man is facing attempted homicide charges following an early morning fight in his residence on Tuesday.
According to Stroud Area Regional Police, officers were dispatched for a fight at a residence on the 1100 block of West Main Street in Stroudsburg at about 3:09 a.m. on Feb. 11.
Police allege that Dominic Madden, 30, confronted several females in his residence, and that an argument ensued.
A release from SARP states that Madden pushed the barrel of a handgun into one female’s forehead, punched and struck another female in the head with the handgun, and forcibly slammed another female’s head into a wall before pointing the handgun at her and discharging a bullet while the gun was next to her head.
While officers were on the scene, Madden exited the rear of the residence, where he was taken into custody without incident.
Madden was charged with one felony count of criminal attempt to commit homicide, two felony counts of aggravated assault, a felony count of discharge of a firearm into an occupied structure, and numerous misdemeanor counts of recklessly endangering another person, terroristic threats with an intent to terrorize another, simple assault, and possession of an instrument of crime with intent.
Madden was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Kristina Anzini. Bail was denied, with a note on Madden’s criminal docket sheet referencing "extensive history and on parole." He has taken to Monroe County Correctional Facility.
A preliminary hearing with Judge Anzini has been scheduled for 10:45 a.m. on Feb. 24.
