State police at the Frackville barracks arrested Donald Moyer Jr., 45, of McAdoo, with two counts of harassment and simple assault after an altercation Dec. 19 at 11:55 p.m. at 107 S. Sheridan St. in the borough.
Police said he was committed to the Schuylkill County Prison, Pottsville, following his arraignment. Bail was set at $20,000.
Police said he was involved in an argument with Kristel Gartner, 40, also of McAdoo, during which time Moyer pushed the woman and caused her to lose her balance. When a 14-year-old female observed the altercation and attempted to defend Gartner by kicking Moyer, police said the man turned and pushed the juvenile, causing her to fall against a wall, striking her head and falling to the floor.
Police said the juvenile was transported to the Hazleton General Hospital where she was treated and released.
