Armstrong County Jail inmate faces more charges for throwing feces

An inmate at the Armstrong County Jail is accused of throwing feces on his cell mate and threatening correctional officers.

Edward Daniel Wilson Jr., 18, of Kittanning, is facing a felony charge of aggravated harassment by a prisoner as well as two summary counts of harassment, said Tpr. Michael Dunlap with state police in Kittanning.

The incidents happened Jan. 24.

Dunlap said the victim, a 36-year-old inmate, reported that Wilson threw him around by his shirt before throwing feces on him. Dunlap didn’t identify the victim.

“The whole thing, minus the throwing of feces, was … basically a harassment between inmates. There was nothing more than he was trying to boss his roommate around,” Dunlap said. “There was never a fight, altercation, anything like that.

“He did grab him … but it wasn’t a violent incident.”

The same day, Wilson also threatened correctional officers who were working in the jail, Dunlap said.

“He was verbally threatening to beat them up and possibly have his dad beat them up,” Dunlap said.

Jail records show Wilson has been in the jail since Oct. 11 on a felony charge of witness intimidation. His bond is set at $25,000.
