Police recruit arrested on assault charges

A Pittsburgh police recruit was arrested Tuesday, accused of assaulting his wife. Jabbar Karwan said he was training to become an officer when he pointed a gun at her, handcuffed her and threatened her with his nightstick.

His wife told police not to arrest him, fearing it would make matters worse for her.

Sonya Toler tells WPXI that he has been placed on administrative leave. He will face a preliminary hearing August 30.
