Troopers: Unrelated Altercations Result in Arrests

SKIPPACK PA – A western Montgomery County man, who was the subject of an arrest warrant issued to the Pennsylvania State Police at its Troop K Barracks in Skippack, surrendered himself to troopers to face a charge of harassment after an alleged fight with a woman, the troop reported Monday (Oct. 4, 2021) in a public information release.

Also Monday, in a separate and unrelated incident, troopers said they expected to file charges against two men who allegedly engaged in a fight at an Upper Salford Township bar.

Surrendered to troopers

State police said a 26-year-old Pennsburg man was arrested on a charge of harassment, and arraigned in the Red Hill courtroom of Magisterial District Justice Maureen Coggins, after he turned himself into troopers at the Skippack barracks.

He had been wanted for only a few hours on an arrest warrant obtained by troopers after an alleged “physical altercation with his girlfriend” that occurred Sept. 28 at 2 a.m. at a Main Street, Pennsburg, location, the release stated. The woman, age 27, also is a Pennsburg resident, it added.

During the incident, which according to troopers involved a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado truck, an Apple iPhone XS Max reportedly was damaged. The phone was valued in the release at $550.

Reported bar fight

In the Upper Salford incident, a different release said state police arrested two men – one, age 50 of Harleysville; the other, age 48 of Souderton – after troopers responded Sept. 28 at 2:15 p.m. to the Cloud 9 Bar, 1110 Sumneytown Pike. They alleged the men “entered into a mutual fight resulting in bodily injury.”

Both were to be charged, also in the Red Hill court, with assault without a weapon resulting in bodily injury, they stated.
