On August 26, 2017 at approximately 6:30pm NHPD was dispatched to a domestic at an apartment in the Ashlea Gardens Apartment Complex (New Holland Borough). A family member had notified NHPD when her relative had sent pictures of herself with multiple injuries. NHPD arrived at the apartment and located a victim with multiple injuries to her face and arms. Officers also noticed the apartment was in disarray and there appeared to have been a struggle.
Officers identified a male in the residence as Michael Kellenberger (age 54 of New Holland). The victim stated that Kellenberger had punched her and had also attempted to choke her. Kellenberger was arrested and charged with Simple Assault, Strangulation, and Harassment. Kellenberger was taken to Lancaster County Central Booking to be arraigned. Kellenberger was released after posting $50,000 bail.
Kellenberger is presumed innocent.
