A Franklin man was arrested last week for allegedly attacking a couple who were in bed in a residence on Georgetown Road early Wednesday morning.

Officials say 21 year-old Nathan McAninch is charged with both aggravated and simple assault and harassment.

McAninch is accused of striking both a man and a woman with a baseball bat, choking and hitting the man with his fists, dragging the woman by her hair and kicking the woman.  Both victims were treated at UPMC Northwest in Cranberry.

Police say a young child was present during the entire ordeal.

After his arraignment Wednesday, McAninch was placed in the Venango County Jail in Franklin with his bail set at $75,000.
