Police: Jeannette man assaults security guard

Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013, 4:30 p.m.
 

A Jeannette man was charged Wednesday with punching a security guard at Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital in Greensburg.

Jason Anthony John, 24, was arraigned on charges of aggravated assault and disorderly conduct by Greensburg District Judge James Albert.

John became belligerent at the hospital late Tuesday night, threatening staff members, Greensburg police said.

When a security guard attempted to lead John to another room away from others, John punched the guard three or four times in face, forehead and neck, police said.

Other security guards then restrained John, authorities said.

John was jailed in lieu of posting $7,500 bond and faces a preliminary hearing Oct. 17 before Albert.
