A Tarentum man admitted on Monday that he stomped on a woman's head during an assault at an Arnold residence last year.

Malachi Supreme Hayes, 26, was ordered to spend 11 1/2 to 23 months in jail but was immediately released on parole after serving almost a year in jail following his arrest.

He admitted to a lesser charge of simple assault. Prosecutors dropped one felony count of aggravated assault and a summary harassment offense.

According to court records, Hayes hit the woman in the face, threw her to the ground, and hit her head with his foot during the altercation on April 12 last year.

Police reported that the victim suffered a broken jaw and several dislodged teeth as a result of the attack.

Hayes also confessed to charges in a separate case where he was arrested in New Kensington last year. Police said he was found with drug paraphernalia, drove a vehicle with a suspended license, and caused damage to an unattended vehicle. Hayes was ordered to serve one year on probation and pay $500 in fines.

According to court records, Hayes has a lengthy criminal history, including a conviction for threatening a group of people with a gun in New Kensington in 2021 and for threatening a woman with a gun in 2018. He served a 23-month prison sentence in that case.
