GREENE TOWNSHIP, Penn.( WPIX) — A Pennsylvania man was arrested after allegedly assaulting a woman and spilling HIV-positive blood onto her.

According to the Chambersburg Public Opinion, James Clinton Houser, 37, allegedly attacked a woman in a Greene Township home.

The victim told police Houser slapped her multiple times and knocked her to the ground. Houser then allegedly picked up a broken piece of glass and threatened her with it.
