City man charged with assault

A Hagerstown man was arrested early Monday in connection with assaults at the Wilson Ruritian Club two weeks ago.

Todd Michael Myers, 31, was charged with four counts of second-degree assault and one count of fourth-degree sex offense, according to Deputy Richard Schleigh of the Washington County Sheriff's Department.

He was released on his own recognizance after appearing before a Washington County District Court commissioner.

The Feb. 16 incident began shortly after midnight at the Wilson Ruritan, 16204 National Pike, deputies learned. When Schleigh arrived at 12:50 a.m., most of the people involved had left the scene.

A woman's shirt and pant were grabbed while she was at the Ruritan dancing with her husband, deputies said.

The two men got into a fight and were separated, but the fight later resumed outside, deputies said.

Four people allegedly were assaulted in all, deputies said.

Two women take young puppies


A Smithsburg couple is hoping two young women who failed to return two unweaned puppies Sunday will have a change of heart.

Kevin Brooks Martin of 12727 Rowe Road told Washington County Sheriff's deputies that the two women stopped at his home to look at some mixed Shepherd-collie puppies he had for sale.

They asked if they could take the puppies with them to get permission to buy them but never returned.

Martin and his wife are concerned that the puppies weren't weaned and could die.

The female pup is mostly tan with patches on her fur. The male is gray with a white fur collar around his neck, the Martins said Monday.

Martin told deputies the women were between 18 and 20 years old, and possibly were driving a black Dodge Daytona.

Pa. dog missing

Another area dog is missing, this one taken from a yard at 10238 Reder Road, in Mercersburg, Pa., over the weekend, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

The 4-month old Welsh Corgi weighs about 12 pounds, is brown with a white chest and feet, short legs, a fox-like face and no tail.

He answers to the name Rosebud.

Thief steals five wigs, toupee

The thief who stole two suitcases from a 1986 Cadillac parked at 1734 Edgewood Hills over the weekend probably got quite a surprise when opening them up.

The cases contained five wigs and one toupee, valued at $3,300, according to Hagerstown City Police.

In other incidents:

  • Someone broke into a residence on the 100 block of East Avenue and stole $655 in electronics, including a VCR, a Sega video game, several cassettes and a cable box, Hagerstown police said.
  • A 1985 Dodge with no tags was taken from Pen Mar Avenue Sunday. The loss was $600, city police said.
  • A $400 coat and a $200 cellular telephone were taken from a car parked in the 500 block of North Mulberry Street, according to city police.
