Williamsport man jailed on robbery-related charges

Brett Boyer was sitting on a set of steps in the 600 block of Campbell Street when a man approached him and punched him in the head, causing him to drop his cellphone which he had been holding about 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, city police said. The man picked up Boyer’s phone and ran into an apartment building, police were told.

Police on Monday arrested Khaleef Reginald Smith, 29, of 311 Center St., apartment 5, and charged him with allegedly assaulting and robbing Boyer of his phone. Police said the attack was unprovoked. Following his arraignment before Biichle on charges of robbery, simple assault, theft, receiving stolen property and harassment, Smith was jailed in lieu of $100,000 bail.
