City man injured, arrested in disturbance at apartment

Robert Harer, 38, of 617 Green St. was injured as well as arrested for his alleged involvement in a disturbance that occurred early Wednesday morning at an apartment just a block away from his home, according to city Patrolman Ryan Brague.

After forcing his way into 630 Campbell St. about 2:40 a.m., Harer, waving a knife, pushed Shadee Wyatt to the floor and began yelling at Tony Bacon, Brague alleged in an affidavit.

“Fearing for his life, Bacon swung a knife at Harer, causing him to leave,” Brague said.

Officers were initially dispatched to Harer’s home, Brague said. When they arrived, “Harer was standing in front of his house with a stab wound to his shoulder and a cut on his hand.”

Police took a report from Bacon and Wyatt shortly after. Brague did not explained how Harer was injured.

After being treated for his injuries, Harer was taken into custody on charges of burglary, simple assault and harassment and arraigned before District Judge Jon E. Kemp. He was committed to the Lycoming County Prison in lieu of $100,000 bail.
