A Bradford man is facing allegations he assaulted and robbed a man in the YMCA parking lot Saturday night.

Andrew I. Meadows, 18, of 43 Forman St., Apt. 5, Bradford, was arraigned Sunday before District Judge Richard Luther and committed to McKean County Jail in lieu of $75,000 bail.

Meadows is charged with robbery-inflict serious bodily injury and aggravated assault, first-degree felonies; and theft by unlawful taking a first-degree misdemeanor.

According to the criminal complaint, at 9:58 p.m., James and Lori Sisler were arguing as they rode in a car on Boylston Street, Bradford. James Sisler told police that he remembers stopping the car he was driving, walking away into the YMCA parking lot, then waking up in the hospital. He said he did not know what happened to him, but he was missing about $300 and his cell phone.

Lori Sisler explained to police that after James Sisler got out of the car, Meadows came to the window and asked if she needed help. She let Meadows move the car out of the road for her, then he got out of the car and ran toward the area where the car that had pulled in behind him was.

She went to the area and heard a commotion, court records stated.

At the corner of Bishop and Forman streets, she found Dylan Dinch and Allison Schwab, then she saw James Sisler lying on the ground with Meadows going through his pockets, according to the complaint.

In an interview with police on Sunday, Meadows said he was traveling in a car with Dinch and Schwab on Boylston Street, when they pulled up behind another vehicle that was parked on the road. There was no driver, and the female passenger — Lori Sisler — was yelling.

According to the complaint, Meadows got out and talked to Sisler, moved the vehicle then went to help Schwab and Dinch get the keys from James Sisler. Meadows saw Schwab trying to get the keys from James Sisler while he was elbowing her. Meadows allegedly punched Sisler a couple of times, and he fell to the ground.

Schwab started to help Sisler up, and he tried to punch her; Dinch punched Sisler one time, knocking him out, the complaint stated.

When Sisler was unconscious, Meadows went through his pockets, taking a phone and $124 in cash, which he spent on cigarettes, Meadows told police.

Sisler suffered a broken jaw in the alleged assault, court records stated.

Court records did not indicate if the Sislers knew anyone in the group prior to the alleged incident.

There was no indication at press time that charges were filed against anyone else.

Meadows is scheduled to appear in Central Court on Thursday.
