According to court documents, on April 10, Clarion-based State Police filed criminal charges against 26-year-old Roman Landon-Charles Saylor, of Vestaburg, Washington County, Pa.
The case stems from an initial call about a suspicious person trespassing at a Monroe Township residence on Monday, April 8.
According to a criminal complaint, around 5:28 a.m. on April 8, troopers were dispatched to a residence on Railroad Street in Monroe Township, Clarion County, for a report of a suspicious person. The complainant said a male was walking around his residence and standing on his porch. The male was later identified as Roman Saylor.
The complainant stated that (the individual later identified as Saylor) was walking around his property looking in the windows. He had knocked on the complainant’s door demanding to use his phone and let him in the residence. Upon the troopers’ arrival, Saylor ran from the porch and into the woodline of the complainant’s property.
Around 9:42 a.m., Troopers Reilly and Mesing and Corporal Yockey were dispatched back to the residence. It was learned that Saylor was looking in the windows again and knocking on the complainant’s door. Upon arrival, Saylor was gone, and the complainant stated that he was running through backyards. Residents in the area related that the man was hiding in bushes and running through the woods. After searching the area, troopers were unable to locate Saylor.
