A man punched a woman in the face twice, claiming she knocked over his motorcycle, officials said.

Brian S. Schaff socked the woman two times, giving her a bloody nose and a swollen left eye, after he walked on to a porch of the home they share in the 1000 block of Canal Street in Northampton, Northampton Co., at 8:50 p.m. Saturday, officials said.

Schaff told police he hit the woman because she had knocked over his motorcycle, officials said.

Schaff, 45, was arraigned on charges of assault and harassment and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $5,000 bail, according to court documents.
