Eastern PA man charged with aggravated assault


A preliminary hearing is scheduled today for an SCI Pine Grove inmate who is accused of attacking a prison guard in June.


21-year-old Luis Sanabria is due to appear before District Judge George Thachik (9 AM) on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, and harassment.  Police say Sanabria and another inmate got into a fight and when the 27-year-old prison guard attempted to break it up, Sanabria punched him in the face and elbowed him in the head.


Sanabria is serving time at the prison for guilty pleas in two cases.  He was sentenced to six to 12 years after pleading guilty in 2011 to charges of illegal possession of a firearm and discharging a firearm into a structure in Berks County.  While he was out on bond in that case, he was arrested again in 2011 and pleaded guilty to simple assault, for which he was ordered to serve an additional three months to two years.
