PLEASANTVILLE — A city man was arrested Tuesday after officers found a woman semiconscious in a Lincoln Avenue home, police said.

Marc Evangelista, 42, was charged with domestic aggravated assault, burglary, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, Capt. Matthew Hartman said.

At 3:38 p.m. Tuesday, patrol units responded to Lincoln Avenue to check on a woman who may have been assaulted, Hartman said.

A call was received earlier in the day from a third party regarding the alleged assault. After exhausting all other means of contacting and/or locating the victim and verifying the source, officers forced entry into the residence, Hartman said.

The victim was semiconscious on the floor, and EMS was requested, Hartman said.

The victim reported that the suspect, Evangelista, had assaulted her and fled, Hartman said.

The victim was transported to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus, Hartman said.

About 8 p.m. Tuesday, patrol units were called back to the area as neighbors reported Evangelista had entered their home unlawfully and was still in the area, Hartman said.

After a thorough check of the area, Evangelista was found and arrested and taken to the Atlantic County jail, Hartman said.
