A Lansdale man is accused of assaulting the same woman twice within about three months. 30-year-old Brian Donovan of Derstine Avenue (pictured here) is charged with domestic assault. Lansdale Police say the 23-year-old victim walked into the station Saturday afternoon to report that her boyfriend had attacked her, and Donovan showed up a short time later to report her assault on him. The victim said Donovan became angry during a conversation and broke her laptop computer. After that he slapped her in the face, pulled her hair, pushed her down, grabbed her around the neck and threatened to kill her. He let go after she pushed him away with her feet. The victim drove herself to Lansdale Hospital for treatment, and then went to police. After talking with both of them, they arrested Donovan. At the time of the Saturday incident he was out on bail for a July assault on her on Mitchell Avenue. He has been returned to Montgomery County Prison.
