A Philadelphia man can now expect harassment and tespassing citations after "intimidating" a 1st National Loan employee when the processing of a loan took too much time.
The complainant told police that he is currently working on a loan for a girl and her father, a 56-year-old Philadelphia man. The man has recently become upset with the amount of time it is taking for the loan to be processed.
On Jan. 10, the man came into the business and cornered the complainant at his desk and began yelling at him about the loan. At that time, the complainant said that the man did not verbally threaten him, but felt that his demeanour was threatening.
On Jan. 11, the complainant stated that he received a phone call from the upset man who said he was coming into the business to talk about the problems.
The complainant told police that he felt threatened by the subject and didn't want him on the property. Officers told the complainant to lock the door and not let the subject into the business and that they would try to make contact with him.
Then, officers received a report from the Bucks County Radio that the subject was at the business punching the glass door.
When officers arrived on the scene, the found the subject sitting in his vehicle and the business' door shut and locked.
The complainant told police that he locked the door and told the subject he did not want him there. At that point, the subject began to violently pull on the door and punched the glass several times demanding to be let in.
Although the subject told police that he just wanted to talk to the complainant and wasn't trying to intimidate him, officers advised him he was no longer welcome at the business and told him to leave.
The subject returned to the business later the same day. The complaint reported that the subject pulled in front of the business. The complainant said he was sitting at his desk and looked at the subject who then smiled at him and drove out of view somewhere behind the building.
The subject will be mailed summary citations for harassment and trespassing.
