Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, the vic­tim said he was con­tacted by a neigh­bor who re­ported that some­one was bang­ing on the vic­tim’s front door.

Po­lice said the neigh­bor re­sponded to the vic­tim’s res­i­dence, where he no­ticed a black man and white woman in their late teens or early 20s run­ning from the res­i­dence.

Po­lice said the sus­pects left the area in a ma­roon ve­hi­cle be­lieved to be a Chevro­let Mal­ibu.

At about 9:30 p.m. Mon­day, po­lice re­sponded to a re­port of an as­sault in the 1300 block of Horse­shoe Pike.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, Con­lan al­legedly ver­bally abused po­lice of­fi­cers and de­manded they leave the res­i­dence when they tried to speak with him, and be­came phys­i­cally com­bat­ive with of­fi­cers when they told him he was un­der ar­rest.

Po­lice said af­ter they put Con­lan in a po­lice car and at­tempted to fin­ish the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, he re­port­edly kicked the win­dow out of one of the doors, and had to be fur­ther re­strained.

Of­fi­cers said they took Con­lan to the Coatesville Po­lice De­part­ment for hous­ing. Of­fi­cers and Con­lan needed to get ex­am­ined by med­i­cal per­son­nel for in­juries.

On Tues­day, Con­lan was ar­raigned before Mag­is­te­rial Dis­trict Judge Grover E. Koon at about 9:30 a.m., and was re­manded to Ch­ester County Prison af­ter fail­ing to post $50,000 cash bail.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, Con­lan has a pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing set before Mag­is­te­rial Dis­trict Judge Jef­frey J. Valoc­chi on Nov. 16.
