03 - 15 - 2012 Oct. assault case against shop owner bound over to court
(LS) The owner of Swarey's Saw Shop in Fayetter Twp., Juniata Co., told Magisterial District Judge Barbara Lyter what he remembered when he was attacked inside his business, located along Billyville Rd., as a result of an attempted robbery. Joseph Swarey identified the suspect, 44-y/o Tracey Scott, on several occasions as the man he believes is the one who assaulted him with the handle of an axe or sledgehammer in an attempt to go after his cash. The defense tried to convince the judge Swarey's was not conclusive, but Scott's case was instead bound over to common pleas court.
