CHARLEROI – A Charleroi woman was arrested Friday on three warrants, one of which accuses her of threatening her brother with a knife at their grandmother’s house last month.

Daneja Renee Moorer, 21, also is accused of threatening over a phone to rape a 1-year-old child and kill the infant’s mother about 1:40 a.m. July 23, Charleroi Regional police stated in court records.

Moorer, whose last known address was on Washington Avenue, was charged with making terroristic threats, aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment, harassment and possession of drug paraphernalia.

During the alleged incident involving the knife, Moorer fled from the 407 Sixth St. residence of her grandmother while police were there about 6 p.m. June 26 questioning her brother, Michael Standard, about the disturbance, the affidavit supporting the charges indicates.

Standard accused his sister of coming at him with a knife after he told her to leave while she was screaming at their grandmother. He said he took a swing at his sister in self-defense, causing a laceration above one of her eyes, the record stated.

In the harassment case, Billie Jo Ashbaugh of Charleroi told police Moorer called her eight times in one hour, threatening to harm her over a problem with Ashbaugh’s boyfriend July 23.

In another matter, police said they noticed marijuana bongs and a pipe when they went to Moorer’s residence to question her about 9:30 p.m. July 19.

She was placed Friday in Washington County jail on $105,000 bond set by District Judge Larry Hopkins.
