PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office says a Harrisburg man is facing a long list of charges after he was caught allegedly breaking into the vehicle of a judge.

The Sheriff’s Office reports that 34-year-old Robert Foltz Jr. is being charged with two counts of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, theft from a motor vehicle, receiving stolen property and public intoxication.

Authorities say Foltz was also wanted on a bench warrant for an aggravated assault charge by the Sheriff’s Office in Mifflin County.

According to investigators, Allegheny County sheriff’s deputies took Foltz into custody Friday after getting a call from a judge about someone wandering around a parking lot.

Foltz is accused of struggling with sheriff’s deputies, assaulting one and attempting to assault another, the Sheriff’s Office reports.

Authorities say Foltz had to be carried back into the courthouse. The Sheriff’s Office reports that Foltz was then “found to have in his possession items taken from inside a judge’s vehicle.”

He then had to be taken to the hospital after officials say he began kicking and banging his head off a marble floor inside the courthouse.

The Sheriff’s Department says Foltz claimed to be homeless and was staying in the city with Occupy Pittsburgh.

Foltz was expected to be moved to the Allegheny County Jail upon his release from the hospital. He was expected to be arraigned sometime Saturday.
