Youngstown police say suspect punched woman’s teeth out

Local News

Youngstown police and U.S. Marshals are looking for a man accused of assaulting a woman so badly that her teeth were knocked out. 

According to a police report, officers were called about 11:15 a.m. Monday to St. Elizabeth Hosptial after a woman came into the emergency room bleeding.

A Mercy Health police officer said the victim was bleeding heavily from her mouth and had several loose teeth. 

The victim told officers she got into an argument with 28-year-old Jamar Houser inside their Park Avenue home, where Jamar punched her in the face and mouth.

After the assault, the woman said Houser took her keys and stole her car. 

While officers were talking with the victim at the hospital, Houser walked into the emergency room, where the victim immediately identified him to police.

Officers tried to grab Houser, leading to a scuffle, but he was able to pull away, run out the doors and drive off.   

An officer was injured in the fight and was treated in the emergency room. 

Houser is currently on probation for a weapons violation. 

In 2010, Houser was charged with the shooting death of Angeline Fimognari outside St. Dominic’s Church, but that case was dismissed after police found evidence connecting someone else to the crime
