(Gloucestercitynews.net)WILLIAMSPORT, PA (August 1, 2020)—Robert Medlar, 49, of Mount Ephraim, New Jersey, was arraigned Friday, July 31 in Williamsport Court on charges of allegedly sexually assaulting a female acquaintance in a guest room at the Genetti Hotel, 200 W. Fourth St., on July 4, according to the Williamsport Sun-Gazette.
Investigators brought Medlar back from New Jersey on Wednesday afternoon, July 29 to face felony charges of attempted sexual assault and aggravated indecent assault as well as two misdemeanor counts each of indecent assault and indecent exposure.
Following his arraignment before District Judge Aaron Biichle, Medlar was initially jailed, but has since been released on $125,000 bail.
On July 4, 2020, the Williamsport Bureau of Police investigated an alleged sexual assault against a woman in a downtown hotel. That investigation resulted in an arrest warrant charging Medlar with Sexual Assault and lesser included offenses. Attempts to find Medlar in Williamsport were unsuccessful and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force adopted the fugitive investigation.
Friday, July 24 at about 1:30 p.m., members of the task force visited a home in the 100 block of Grant Street in Mount Ephraim, New Jersey and arrested Medlar without incident. He was committed to the Camden County Prison to await extradition to Pennsylvania.
U.S. Marshal Martin Pane said, “The U.S. Marshals Service recognizes the importance of bringing those charged with serious sex crimes to justice as quickly as possible. We give these types of cases our utmost attention. It is my hope that the victim and family members will find comfort knowing the alleged attacker is now in custody.”
