Two men accused of taking part in an assault on Lansdale Police Sgt. James Waltrop outside Third and Walnut Bar in December—an assault which also allegedly involved Alfredo and Richard Noboa—are headed to trial in Montgomery County court following a preliminary hearing Thursday in Lansdale.
The courtroom was packed with Lansdale Police officers and other officers from nearby departments, who came out to show their support of Waltrop.
Alfredo G. Noboa, 60, of Montgomery Township, and Carlos Taynys, 55, of Souderton, are scheduled for formal arraignment in county court Feb. 26, per court records.
Noboa is charged with felony riot-intent to commit a felony, felony riot-intent to coerce, three counts of felony aggravated assault, two counts of obstructing the duties of a law enforcement official, resisting arrest, failure to disperse, simple assault and disorderly conduct, according to court records.
Noboa is free on $100,000 bond.
Taynys is charged with felony riot-intent to coerce, obstructing the duties of law enforcement, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and harassment, according to court records.
At the hearing, Waltrop testified for more than an hour on the assault; the testimony was translated for the defendants to Spanish, according to The Reporter.
During the testimony, Waltrop referenced a black-and-white surveillance video of the assault that occurred the early morning hours of Dec. 7, per the report. The surveillance was captured by Lansdale Borough cameras installed in the vicinity of the bar, per the report.
