Former Supervisor Candidate, Police Officer Faces Assault Charges
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            A New Hanover resident who works as a police officer in Conshohocken faces three criminal counts for assaulting and harassing a woman last month.

            According to police, Shawn Rogers Malloy, 38, of Tracy Lane, allegedly struck the woman in the mouth with an open hand during an argument in the parking lot of All-Star bar, located at the intersection of Swamp Pike and Fagleysville Road, on Nov. 21.

            At 9:30 p.m. on Nov. 21, the woman spoke with Malloy in his vehicle in the parking lot. During the discussion, he said his life was over, produced a firearm and stuck it in his mouth, according to the affidavit. She told police that he placed the barrel in his mouth and pulled the trigger, after which she told him there were no bullets in the gun, the affidavit states. Malloy repeated the act, made a reference to Russian roulette and threw the fire arm back in the console before driving away.

            The woman returned to the bar a short time later to discover Malloy had also returned. She went into his truck to retrieve the weapon, according to the document.

            Malloy exited the bar to confront the woman in the vehicle and struck her, police said. The woman also reported that he stuck sharp item, identified as a handcuff key, into her back, the legal document states.

            The woman ran back into the bar to inform employees that she had been assaulted. During an interview with authorities, she had a swollen lower lip and appeared to have a small oval shaped injury to the center of her back, according the law enforcement officials.

            The woman also told police that on Nov. 12, she had an argument with Malloy, after which he attempted to talk to her about "sexual things." She said she refused his advances but he grabbed her inappropriately, the affidavit states. The woman recorded the incident on her cell phone, according to law enforcement officials. 

            Malloy is accused of one misdemeanor count of simple assault and two summary counts of harassment. Charges in the case were filed Nov. 24.

            Malloy's current employment status with the Conshohocken Police Department is suspended, according to news release from Chief Mike Orler. He referred further questions related to the arrest or investigation to the New Hanover Township Police Department and the office of the Montgomery County District Attorney.

            During a Nov. 24 arraignment, District Judge Juanita A. Price set bail in the case at $25,000 unsecured. A preliminary hearing in the case, before District Judge Maurice Saylor, has been scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 22.
