2 charged with aggravated assault
Fresh footprints left in the snow helped lead city police to two men who allegedly assaulted a third man early Wednesday morning in his Wyoming Street home, according to court records.
Rashawn Lee Logan II, 18, of 941 Penn St., and Marcquel J. Olsen, 19, of 812 Wyoming St., both were taken into custody at Logan’s home shortly after the 1 a.m. assault on Lloyd Seagraves at 719 Wyoming St., city police Agent Trent Peacock said.
The men entered Seagraves’ home “under the pretense of having problems with a car,” Peacock said in a criminal complaint.
Initially, only one man was at the door asking to use Seagraves’ telephone, police said. Once the man was in the house, he “grabbed a glass table” and smashed it over Seagraves’ head, knocking him to the ground, Peacock said.
A second man then entered the house, jumped on top of Seagraves and punched him repeatedly in the face, Peacock said.
Seagraves yelled for his roommate, whose dog suddenly came down a set of stairs, prompting the two men to flee the house, Peacock said.
When police arrived on the scene, they saw Seagraves “bleeding from a large head wound,” Peacock said, adding the resident was treated at the UPMC Susquehanna Williamsport Regional Medical Center for various injuries, including a closed head wound and a broken nose.
Officers followed fresh footprints from the crime scene to Logan’s home, leading to the arrests of the two men, both of whom were charged with robbery, burglary, aggravated assault, simple assault, felony trespassing and conspiracy. The two were committed to the Lycoming County Prison in lieu of $200,000 bail each.
