Man Jailed For Burglary/Sexual Assault
An Emporium man was jailed early this morning, accused of entering a known female's residence through an unlocked door and going to her bedroom where he sexually assaulted the victim.
Adam Troy Eckert, 32, of Emporium, PA, is facing a myriad of charges filed by Trooper Christopher Bock of the Emporium barracks in District Judge Barry Brown's office.
Trooper Bock said Eckert entered the victim's home, in Emporium Borough, through an unlocked door, went to her bedroom and sexually assaulted her on Wednesday morning at 2:25 am. Eckert was then chased out of the victim's bedroom when the victim retrieved a nearby hatchet. He retreated to the kitchen area of the residence and was apprehended by Pennsylvania State Police in that location upon their arrival.
Eckert was arraigned at 10:30 am today before District Judge Barry D. Brown who set bail at $25,000., accepting 10%. Eckert could not post bail and was committed to jail pending a Preliminary Hearing tentatively set for 10:00 am on July 5, 2012 before Judge Brown.
