Winners of the Scavenger Hunt will be announced on Wednesday or Thursday. There are like 500 freaking photos, so, it’s taking awhile.
Anyway, as much as I’m not a fan of the Promenade Shops in Saucon Valley, they are at least a pretty safe place to walk around and pretend you’re in a little town. They only real violence you may ever hear there is the occasional spat at one of the bars, but even that is super few and far between.
So, that’s why this whole thing seems just really out of place.
An 18-year-old Coopersburg man wearing a Darth Vader T-shirt attacked two younger teens at the Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley on Monday afternoon, police said.
Jeremy J. Silvius (FACEBOOK PROFILE) assaulted a 14-year-old and a 16-year-old outside the White Orchid restaurant about 5:40 p.m. in the shopping center at 2985 Center Valley Parkway, Upper Saucon Township, police said.
A girl had been hit by a young man and people were crying, according to initial emergency radio reports from the scene.
Township police Cpl. Michael Fritts said he could not say what started the violence. He said both juvenile victims were taken toLehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest. He did not know their conditions late Monday.
Silvius is 6-foot-3 and weighs 260 pounds, Fritts said. He was charged with aggravated assault against the 14-year-old, simple assault against both juveniles and harassment against both.
Silvius was on his way to the Lehigh County Central Booking Center for arraignment late Friday, Fritts said. SOURCE: The Morning Call
Of course there is some sort of back story here and I’m sure it involves this guy taking umbrage at something that was said. Or, he’s really just a crazy person who likes to beat on people not his size.
