Norco Man Arrested on Warrant for Alleged Assault

NORTH COVENTRY PA – A 26-year-old North Coventry man, Joseph Daniel Fritz, has been taken into custody on an arrest warrant issued to the township Police Department, it reported Monday (Aug. 22, 2022), following a domestic disturbance incident that occurred in March.

Police charged Fritz with simple assault and harassment on March 23 after a department investigation determined he “physically assaulted his girlfriend causing injuries,” according to its CrimeWatch website. The department alleged Fritz fled the scene as police arrived.

The warrant was issued July 22, it added.

A preliminary hearing in the matter is scheduled for Oct. 27 in the courtroom of Magisterial District Justice John A. Hipple, court records show.
