It always seemed that Harrisburg was quite a nice little town, quiet, friendly and safe. But now that may be changing. At least, last week’s events seem to suggest that. But one probably cannot really judge a city on one or two random events of crime which the residents of Harrisburg are hoping the event at the Jonestown Road nightclub was.
Last week police were called to the scene and forced to charge three men from Dauphin County for what seemed like an attack that was unprovoked. Now, as reported in a recent ABC article, three men face a “felony charge of aggravated assault.” The men come from Lower Paxton Township, Middletown and Harrisburg and are 21-22 year-olds. The victim was a township resident aged 24 and was immediately taken to Penn State Hershey Medical Center, treated for head and facial injuries.
Two of the men were sent to Dauphin County Prison with a $25,000 bail. The third attacker turned himself into the police a few days later.
