Blakely Man Charged With Assault

July 31, 2018

THROOP — Borough police charged a man with assault, accusing him of injuring another man who asked him to leave an apartment Saturday afternoon.

Joshua Carl Davis, 27, the Peckville section of Blakely, remained in the Lackawanna County Prison on Tuesday unable to post $10,000 bail on simple assault and harassment charges.

Police say he beat up Jamie Trout, who told them Davis pushed him into a wall and hit him in the head with a glass object. Trout suffered a severe cut on the right side of his face, according to an arrest affidavit.

Davis told police he was asleep on a couch when Trout came in, asked him to leave and grabbed him by the arm, but said Trout injured himself.

Trout was not charged.
