Niffen to face arraignment

A Bowling Green man accused of violent actions, as well as theft and property damage, following a alleged dispute involving a former girlfriend will face an arraignment trial later this month in Pike County courts.

Joshua Niffen, 21, has been charged with three felony counts of burglary,  property damage, and assault – causing serious injury after an incident that occurred on March 28.

Niffen is accused of entering an apartment and assaulting a person, damaging property there, and theft.

The defendant, represented by attorney Dean Gallego, was seen for a preliminary hearing on June 12. He will appear again in Pike County circuit courts before Judge Chris Kunza Mennemeyer for a July 23 arraignment.

According to available reports, Niffen has no previous criminal record.
