HAZLETON — A man is wanted on aggravated assault charges in Hazleton.

Police said Fernando Torres was first arrested back in September for allegedly shooting a man in the neck on North Poplar Street in Hazleton.

According to authorities, when the shooting victim skipped out on a hearing, the charges against Torres were withdrawn.

Officials said Torres was released from jail without having to post bail.

State police have not said why the charges against Torres have been refiled in Hazleton.
