Police: Man pelted woman at egg-decorating party

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh police say a man threw hardboiled eggs at his girlfriend during an Easter egg decorating party, then tried to attack police.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Sunday that Aaron Goempel, 27, was arrested on simple and aggravated assault charges.

Police say they responded to a fight call to find a woman with a red and swollen right eye. She told police Goempel threw the eggs after she accused him of cheating on her.

Authorities say that after police made their way past a makeshift barricade into a bedroom, Goempel reached for a row of knives and swords before he was subdued. They say he yelled racist obscenities at one officer and kicked another in the groin.

Court records don’t indicate whether he has a defense attorney.
