Charges Filed After Apartment Tenants Allegedly Assaulted
CHESTNUTHILL TOWNSHIP — Three people were hurt after allegedly being attacked by the former tenant of an apartment house in Monroe County.
According to state police, a human services employee showed up at the place on Arlene Drive in Effort Sunday to give medication to a patient.
Troopers say Eumir Aaron, 30, of Stroudsburg came in and punched the worker in the face.
Aaron then allegedly stabbed a man in the back with a fork and hit him over the head with a measuring cup. They said he also stabbed another person in the arm and stomach with a pen.
Authorities said Aaron used to live in the home but was transferred out about six months ago.
The residence is a home for medically challenged people, run by NHS Human Services in Stroudsburg.
Aaron is locked up in Monroe County on a number of charges including assault and burglary.
