Homosexual held for trial on charge of assaulting officer
A magisterial district judge yesterday held a Philadelphia man for trial on charges that he assaulted a police officer and resisted arrest during a disturbance outside a Christian family's home near Phoenixville, Pa.
Police said Jason W. Robbins, 26, whose friends were in front of the home of a family that works with Repent America, punched an East Pikeland Township police officer in the stomach during an argument.
During the preliminary hearing, neighbors who witnessed the scuffle testified that Robbins attacked the officer and that others in the group made death threats against the family.
The family was holding a church meeting at home while the homosexual activists gathered outside and began to scream profanities while holding a large sign with an obscene message that threatened violence, prompting neighbors to call police.
Robbins was released from Chester County Prison yesterday after posting 10 percent of $10,000 bail. Chester County Assistant District Attorney Bonnie Cox-Shaw said authorities were still investigating the incident.
