City man accused of resisting arrest

A criminal complaint has been filed in magisterial district court charging Frederick L. Glass II, 41, Altoona, with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, criminal trespass and taunting of a police dog after an incident that began at a Logan Township convenience store Monday morning, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

Police were called to check out a “suspicious male in the parking lot acting odd and apparently on a controlled substance,” a news release from township police stated.

When officers tried to detain Glass, he began to fight, continuing to fight even after being hit by a Taser twice, according to the release.

Glass then ran away and opened the door of a nearby house, after which officers released a police dog. Glass then jumped three fences, ran back to the front of the convenience store — University Korner — and began fighting an officer, according to the news release. The dog grabbed Glass by the leg, and Glass struck the dog, until officers finally got him into handcuffs with the help of a store customer, according to the release.

Glass was taken to UPMC Altoona for treatment of injuries. Altoona police and AMED assisted.
