Genesee Man Jailed For Hurting Woman and Child

Domestic Violence
In a domestic violence incident on Tuesday afternoon at a residence on White Knoll Road in Harrison Township, a Genesee man was jailed on a number of charges.

Andy Joe Matteson, 38, of 1779 Andrews Settlement Road, Genesee, PA is accused of injuring a 46 year old female and a 12 year old male juvenile.

Coudersport troopers said the incident occurred when the accused hit the sides of the woman's head with his hands simultaneously, threw her down onto the floor, stole her purse while fleeing the scene, and kicked a 12 year old boy in the left knee, who was attempting to free the purse from Matteson's grasp.

The woman sustained a cut on her ankle from being thrown to the ground, and had pain in her back and a headache. The 12 year old had a swolen and bruised knee.

Matteson turned himself and the purse in to PSP at Coudersport.

Upon performing an inventory search of the purse, troopers found suspected drug paraphenalia consisting of a pipe.

Matteson was arraigned before District Court Judge Delores Bristol in Galeton, charged with Simple Assault, Harassment, and Theft. Bail was set at $5,000.00 straight and the accused was committed to Potter County Jail after being unable to post bail.

Troopers said Matteson is expected to be charged additionally with Prohibited Acts, Posession of Drug Paraphenalia.

Troopers do not release the names of victims of domestic violence.

Interesting. A guy is in a fight and goes to jail. A guy that kills a person and has other criminal charges brought against him for other crimes gets to walk. This must be the difference between district judges. Just puzzels me.

Am I reading this right? The guy stole a purse and it had a marijauna pipe in it and he's being charged with possession of drug paraphenalia. Too funny.

Welcome to the Potter County judicial system!!

This should clearly clarify to everyone that reads this... The PIPE isn't the man's.. but as you have said this is POTTER COUNTY and the man will be dumped upon which I consider outrageous. What is simply clear to us obviously isn't so clear to them (woman's purse, hello) if he is being charged for it and she gets away with it!!!!!

Lets all have a pitty party for the poor unfortunate wifebeater/child abuser/thief. Oh how harsh our potter county justice system is to unjustly prosecute this upstanding member of our community. And to think that he might even get a lengthy probation sentence out of it all....

People really need to READ the article before commenting. He's still in jail only because he could not post bail not because of any district judge. And, he was not charged with possession of drug paraphenalia the article only stated that it was in the purse. He was charged with simple assault, harassment and theft.

Rather than worrying about the charges, shouldn't we all be concerned about the increase in violent crime in our area??

You obviously aren't concerned when others are walking becuase the dj's won't set any bail they give ror.
