City pair arrested after bar fight

JOHNSTOWN — A Johnstown man and woman are charged with beating two people inside a city bar.

Johnstown police said Terry Leroy Williams Sr., 43, approached a woman Sunday evening at the Fairfield Lounge on Fairfield Avenue. She refused to speak with him and called him a pedophile because his name is listed on the Pennsylvania Megan’s law website.

Williams walked away. A short time later, a woman identified as Kristy Marie Rose, 30, walked up to the first woman and knocked her off a barstool, police said.

The woman told police that Rose began punching her, “causing her head to split open,” before bar patrons could break up the fight.

After the incident, Williams allegedly attacked a man who was with the injured woman, knocking him to the floor.

The bartender and customers broke up the fight.

Rose and Williams fled the building before police arrived. They then cut the front tires on a 1995 Chevrolet belonging to one of the victims that was parked in a lot along Fairfield Avenue.

Both were arrested later. Police said Williams fought with the officers who took him into custody.

Williams, of the 100 block of Coal Street, was charged with disorderly conduct, criminal conspiracy, resisting arrest, reckless endangerment, simple assault and public drunkenness.

Rose, of the 300 block of Corrine Street, was charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, simple assault, harassment, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.

Both were arraigned by District Judge John Barron of Upper Yoder Township.

Williams was released on $30,000 unsecured bond and Rose was released on $5,000 unsecured bond.
