Lower Salford Man Faces Assault, Weapons Charges
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            A Lower Salford man faces burglary, assault and weapons charges in Upper Salford. The state police arrested Chad Allan Hacker Jr., 32, of Homestead Drive, following an Oct. 7 incident.

            Hacker is accused of two felony counts of burglary, illegal possession of a firearm as well as three misdemeanor counts of simple assault and one count each of making terroristic threats and reckless endangerment at a residence on Zepp Road, according to information posted on a state judicial website.

            According to the state police, Hacker discharged a weapon at the home on Oct. 7. Authorities were dispatched to the residence at 1:35 p.m., according to police criminal complaint filed in the Red Hill court of Maureen Coggins.

            The resident told police he saw Hacker standing near an open door of his silver SUV on Rostkowski Road. Less than 10 minutes later, the man heard the sound of gunshots inside his home. The state police discovered three .45 caliber auto shell casings on the roadway adjacent to the home, according to the affidavit of probable cause.

            Later, the male resident told police of two additional incidents at his home that occurred in July. Early in the month, Hacker "kicked his door in" and pushed and grabbed him. The intruder only left after the resident – who sustained scratches and bruises – grabbed him by the neck, according to the legal document.

            At the end of the month, Hacker snuck into the victim's house and approached him holding a log.  The resident said Hacker approached him with the log, raising it to strike him. However, he fled the residence after a third person stepped in between them, according to court records.

            Hacker, charged on Oct. 7, was remanded to Montgomery County Prison after Coggins set bail in the case at $500,000 monetary during a preliminary arraignment two days later. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 23, according the judicial website.
