A Walbridge man is accused of punching a woman and then threatening a U.S. Postal Worker who came to her defense. 

Mitchell L. Siebenaler, 25, is charged with felonious assault, a second-degree felony, and aggravated menacing, a fifth-degree felony. The incident was reported in the 600 block of Durango Street in South Toledo.

On Sept. 1 at approximately 11:30 a.m., Mr. Siebenaler attempted to hit Katelyn Hofbauer, 30, with a baseball bat by swinging it at her twice, according to documents filed in Toledo Municipal Court. 

He is accused of pinning her against a vehicle and punching her in the face several times, court documents show. 

Nick Davis, a U.S. Postal Worker, came to the aid of Ms. Hofbauer, according to court documents. The postal worker sprayed Mr. Siebenaler with pepper spray, according to a police report. 

Mr. Siebenaler then charged Mr. Davis with a baseball bat and threatened to kill and beat him up, court documents show. 

Mr. Siebenaler got into his vehicle and drove away.

Mr. Siebenaler was arrested by Lucas County Sheriff’s deputies on Sunday, according to jail records. 

Mr. Siebenaler was arraigned in Toledo Municipal Court Monday, where Judge C. Allen McConnell set bond at $5,000, with 10 percent due to the court. Bond was later posted. 

He was ordered to have no contact with either Ms. Hofbauer or Mr. Davis. 

He is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing on Sept. 27.
