PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The father of the suspect accused of gunning down a New Kensington police officer remains in jail in a separate case, accused of assaulting a woman twice. Gregory Baucum Jr. has probation violations in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties, and like his 29-year-old son, the 47-year-old has a long criminal record. It goes back to 1989 with charges like receiving stolen merchandise, vandalism and possession of drugs.
HARRISON TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — Emergency crews responded to an urgent call for help from a man who claimed to be hurt and bleeding in the woods, but when they arrived on the scene, they found the man wasn’t really hurt at all. A 911 call came in from a man claiming to have fallen down a hill in the woods in Harrison. He told police he was bleeding badly and about to pass out. Investigators say none of that was true. Police say 49-year-old David Thimons, of Tarentum, made the call.
Dai’Shonta Williams, 29, is accused of following 46-year-old Janice Watkins, throwing a brick at her car and attacking her. Police say Williams’ boyfriend, Vincent Beasley, was also involved in the attack. Beasley has been out on bail, and his preliminary hearing was continued. Williams remains in jail, her bail denied a few weeks ago after it was determined she was a threat to the community. Attorney Blaine Jones says his client instructed him to waive her hearing.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
