52-year-old accused of assault

Thomas L. McIntosh, 52, of unknown residence, is accused of allegedly assaulting a Williamsport woman at her home, 425 Louisa St., on July 24, because she refused to have sex with him, city police said.

Witnesses at the scene included a few small children and the victim’s roommate. The roommate reported to police that McIntosh initially shoved the victim to the ground before striking her in the face several times, court documents alleged.

McIntosh has been committed to Lycoming County Prison in lieu of $3,500 bail. He soon will appear before District Judge Allen P. Page III for a preliminary hearing to face charges of simple assault and harassment.

McIntosh also is wanted in Philadelphia for burglary related charges, said city police.
