Montgomery man accused of assault

MONTGOMERY – Jeremy Wayne Winder, 23, of 61 N. Main St., faces charges of aggravated assault, simple assault and harassment, after allegedly beating another man so badly that he had to be sent to the hospital, according to court record.

At about 1:30 a.m. Sept. 28, members of the Montgomery police department responded to 125 S. Main St. for a reported assault. When they arrived at the scene, Richard Reynolds alleged that Winder repeatedly had punched and kicked him in the head and face.

Two other witnesses verified Reynold’s statements, according to court records.

Reynolds and Winder were transported to Muncy Valley Hospital, where they were treated for wounds allegedly sustained during the assault. Winder suffered a cut on his ring finger as a result of punching Reynolds, records state.

According to police, Reynolds was rushed by ambulance to the hospital, where he received treatment for the injuries on his head and face. In the affidavit, authorities noted that “his face was severely swollen.”

Winder was taken into custody and arraigned before District Judge Jon E. Kemp on Sept. 28. He was incarcerated in lieu of $35,000 bail.
