Local Man Jailed for Allegedly Punching, Kicking Juvenile Due in Court on Tuesday

CLARION CO., Pa. (EYT) — A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday morning for a local man who is behind bars for allegedly assaulting a juvenile victim during an incident in Sligo Borough.

According to court documents, a preliminary hearing for 36-year-old Larry William Lewis, of Sligo, is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 2, with District Judge Jeffrey C. Miller presiding.

He faces the following charges:

– Simple Assault, Misdemeanor 2
– Harassment — Subject Other to Physical Contact, Summary

He is currently lodged in the Clarion County Jail on $10,000.00 monetary bail.

The charges stem from a domestic incident that occurred on February 22 in Sligo Borough, Clarion County.

Details of the case:

According to a criminal complaint filed in District Judge Miller’s office, the incident occurred around 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, February 22, at a residence on Bald Eagle Street, in Sligo Borough, Clarion County.

The complaint states that  Larry Lewis woke up a juvenile victim by screaming at him for being late for school. Lewis allegedly continued to blame the victim for his phone and fish tank not working.

When the victim told Lewis he was not responsible for his phone and fish tank not working, Lewis became enraged and charged at the victim. Lewis reportedly tackled the victim to the ground and proceeded to punch and kick him in the back, head, arms, legs, and chest, according to the complaint.

The victim eventually got away from Lewis and called his juvenile probation officer to take him to school. Once at school, the victim told his probation officer that Lewis was drunk and started blaming him for miscellaneous things before punching and kicking him, according to the complaint.

The victim was then interviewed by police.

He explained that Lewis was out drinking the night before and came home and started screaming at him. Lewis then took the victim’s phone, and that was the reason why he slept through his alarm to go to school. The victim further explained the assault to police and indicated that Lewis was swearing at him, telling him that he wanted him out of his house, according to the complaint.

The complaint notes that police observed multiple recent red marks and bruises on the victim’s back, chest, and right arm.

Lewis was arraigned in front of Judge Miller at 1:38 p.m. on February 22.
