    Man attacks cop

    EAST CAMERON TOWNSHIP - A Kulpmont man faces charges after resisting arrest and attacking a police officer along Gap Road on Oct. 11.

    According to court documents filed by Trooper Samuel Edwards of the Pennsylvania State Police, Stonington Barracks, he was dispatched to Gap Road at 2:30 a.m. for a person resisting arrest. Upon arrival, Edwards spoke to Butler Township Police Patrolman Shawn Butler, who said he encountered the individual, Eric J. Janoka, 32, of 1328 Scott St., Kulpmont, sitting on the guardrail naked. When Butler approached Janoka, the Kulpmont man allegedly pounced on the officer and a struggle ensued.

    After being taken into custody, Janoka began apologizing and told officers he was under the influence of a bath salt and meth mixture and was hiding a bag of heroin in his rectum, according to police.

    Edwards took custody of the suspect after a search showed that he was wanted on a warrant from the Northumberland County Sheriff's Office. Janoka was taken to Geisinger-Shamokin Area Community Hospital, where a medical exam was conducted, but no substances were found on his person.

    Janoka was charged with misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest and open lewdness and was cited for harassment, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. A preliminary hearing is set for Wednesday, Dec. 12, before Magisterial District Judge Hugh Jones, of Mount Carmel.

    Harassment

    MONROE TOWNSHIP - A Trevorton man is accused of pushing a woman to the ground at 2:44 p.m. Nov. 18 in the parking lot of Monroe Marketplace, according to state police at Selinsgrove.

    The woman was not identified in the police report.

    Moderate injury

    SHAMOKIN DAM - A Coal Township driver experienced moderate injuries Nov. 17 when he lost control of the car he was driving and struck two parked vehicles on Route 1023, according to state police at Selinsgrove.

    State police at Selinsgrove report a 2003 Chevrolet Suburban, driven by Vickie A. Hayter, 73, of Northumberland, was pulling out from a stop sign on Mill Road turning north onto Old Trail Road. Police allege Hayter failed to yield the right of way to a 2008 Nissan Rogue driven by Jeffrey A. Heintzelman, 51, of Sunbury, which was traveling south on Old Trail Road. Heintzelman tried to stop his vehicle to avoid the crash, but struck the left rear quarter panel of the Suburban with its front left quarter panel.

    No one was injured, but the Rogue had to be towed from the scene. Police reported Hayter was cited for the accident.
