Accused Burglar, Assailant Waives Hearing
On July 4 police were called to an assault in progress on Chris Drive and learned that 20-year-old John Forehand went into an apartment without permission and knocked a stereo speaker onto the floor. When he was leaving, he saw the resident returning home, went to the vehicle, pulled a passenger from the back seat and kicked him, injuring his arm and kidney area, according to papers filed in District Judge Bill Todd’s office. He also kicked a woman, injuring her leg.
Forehand is charged with burglary, criminal trespass, and simple assault, as well as harassment, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief. He is free on $5,000 bail.
Also today in McKean County Central Court, three women waived their preliminary hearings.
22-year-old Samantha Mott of Bradford is charged with theft by deception; 21-year-old Amber Jones of Smethport is charged with recklessly endangering another person; and 38-year-old Theresa Hemion of Bradford is charged with simple assault and harassment.
Forgery and theft charges against 46-year-oldTraci Frenz of Bradford were withdrawn by the district attorney’s office.
