Man Facing Criminal Trespass Charges After Two Separate Incidents

The Ashland Police have charged a man for criminal trespassing more than once Monday morning.

According to Ashland Police Chief Mark O'Hearn, Paul Hutnick, 48, of Dillsburg was arrested Monday, May 14, 2018 after two separate incidents that morning.

Police say Hutnick attempted to gain entry into his ex-girlfriends home in the 1000 block of Centre Street around 9:30am and then fled before Ashland Police arrived.  An hour later, around 10:45am, Hutnick went back to the same home and used an aluminum pole to try and gain entry through a patio door into the home but fled again when police were called.

Around 11:00am, Chief O'Hearn spotted Hutnick in the area of South 10th Street and chased him into an apartment building at 30 S. 10th Street.

At this point, O'Hearn requested assistance calling Schuylkill County Sheriff Joseph Groody, and Police units from Butler Township, Frackville, West Mahanoy Township, and Shenandoah.

Police searched the building but were unable to find Hutnick.

A few minutes later, police spotted Hutnick in the area of 10th and Pine Street and set up a perimeter of the area.

Hutnick was found hiding in the yard of a home in the 900 block of Brock Street where another foot chase ensued south on 10th street to a wooded area off Oak Street where Hutnick was apprehended by Lieutenant Daniel Holderman of Butler Township and Sheriff Groody.

Hutnick was charged by Ashland Police with 2 separate cases of felony criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.

Hutnick was arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Christina Hale where she set bail at $50,000 cash bail for the first case and $25,000  straight cash bail for the second.  Hutnick was committed to Schuylkill County Prison unable to post bail
