Matthew Silverman, 47, of Bark River, Mich., was charged with aggravated first degree witness tampering – preventing information to the police and domestic assault – intent to inflict bodily harm – subsequent offense after he assaulted his girlfriend on January 18, 2011. At 5:09 a.m. on January 18, police were dispatched to a business on the report of a crying female with blood on her shirt and wearing little clothing in the below freezing temperatures. The victim reported that she and her Winona State University anatomy professor, Silverman, began having an intimate relationship in November 2010. On January 18, 2011, the couple got together but Silverman’s intoxicated state created an argument. The victim left Silverman’s house and went home around 1:30 a.m. A few hours later, the victim was awoken when highly intoxicated Silverman entered her home and began yelling at her. The yelling quickly escalated to punching and kicking the victim. When the victim tried to crawl away, Silverman grabbed onto her pants. During the struggle, the victim fought back and reported that she believed she had broken his nose, explaining the blood on her clothing. She was able to wiggle free from his grip and eventually made it out the front door. She got in her car and drove until she found a business that was open to ask for help. It was reported that Silverman threatened to kill her and her family if she contacted police. Silverman denied anything physical happened and said they were arguing because he was trying to end their “inappropriate” relationship. Silverman could face up to 21 years in jail or pay up to $33,000 in fines.
