An 18 year-old Hellertown resident is facing a number of charges as a result of an investigation conducted by borough police.

In a news release Thursday police said Skyler Kelly, no address provided, was arrested Wednesday evening at a home in the 1600 block of Main Street after officers were dispatched there in response to a report of a fight in progress.

Police said that after Kelly was taken into custody “for the initial fight and threats, further investigation revealed it was a course of harassing conduct against both a juvenile female and a juvenile male victim.”

According to court records Kelly is charged with Misdemeanor 1 Terroristic Threats, Misdemeanor 1 Stalking, two counts of Misdemeanor 3 Harassment, Misdemeanor 3 Disorderly Conduct and Misdemeanor 2 Simple Assault.

Kelly was committed to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $5,000 straight bail following a preliminary arraignment before District Judge Daniel Corpora Thursday morning, the records state. A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled to be held before District Judge Alan Mege in Lower Saucon Township District Court on Sept. 12 at 9 a.m.

In a separate case from earlier in the week, Hellertown Police have charged Kelly with fleeing and eluding, after they say he fled from an officer who attempted to stop him in the vehicle he was driving at the time.

Police said that alleged incident occurred shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday.

In that case Kelly is charged with with Misdemeanor 2 Fleeing or Attempting to Elude an officer as well as three summary offenses: reckless driving, operating a vehicle without insurance and improper display of a license plate.

Following his preliminary arraignment on those charges before District Judge Daniel Corpora Thursday morning, bail in that case was set at $1,000, court records state. A preliminary hearing is scheduled to be held at the same time as the hearing in the other case, they indicate.
