A Uniontown man was arrested Sunday on charges of setting fire to a North Union Township home he allegedly burglarized and assaulting the two residents as they tried to escape.

Roman N. Hunter, 19, was charged by state police in Uniontown with arson, aggravated assault, burglary, criminal trespass, harassment and simple assault in connection with the incident at 3:45 a.m. Sunday.

Police allege that Hunter forced his way into the Independence Avenue residence and assaulted an 18-year-old female resident and an 18-year-old man.

Police allege Hunter left the scene on foot but returned later and set the house on fire. No one was in the home when the blaze began.

Police said the home was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived.

Hunter was arraigned before District Judge Wendy Dennis and ordered to the county jail after failing to post $50,000 bond. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Nov. 6 before Dennis.
