An Akron, Ohio, man scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Centre County found himself back in jail facing new charges just days before his hearing.
According to a criminal complaint filed Sept. 6 by Patton Township police, an officer was dispatched at about 10:30 a.m. to the North Atherton Street Walmart for a report of a disorderly man in the store. The man had reportedly been cursing at employees and threatened to shoot a manager.
On arrival, the officer identified Mansour I. Ain, 25, as he had dealt with him earlier in the day, police said, as officers from both Patton Township and State College police had interacted with him four times over about five hours.
An assistant manager claimed Ain had given employees a hard time because they asked him to put shoes on, police said. When the manager told Ain to leave the store, Ain reportedly said he was going to get a gun and come back for him.
He was taken into custody and charged with one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct. He was released Monday after posting $500 in bail.
Later Monday, an officer was dispatched to the Citizens Bank along West College Avenue for a disorderly man yelling at people and kicking parked vehicles, the affidavit of probable cause filed by State College police said. The man was again identified as Ain.
Ain’s sister stated he had become upset when she refused to buy him a cigar, police said. He reportedly began yelling at her and kicked several cars in the parking lot.
Ain allegedly admitted to kicking the cars and apologized, police said, saying he kicked them because “he owns the block.”
He was taken into custody and arraigned Monday before District Judge Carmine Prestia, according to court documents, and charged with two additional misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct. Straight monetary bail was set at $25,000.
Ain’s initial preliminary hearing is slated for Wednesday. A second hearing for the second set of charges is scheduled for Sept. 20.
