Southern Chester County Regional Police

• Police said Hector Sanchez-Perez, 28, of Avondale was arrested and charged with DUI and related traffic offenses, after the 2007 Chevrolet he was operating was stopped for erratic driving. The incident occurred on March 18 at 12:42 a.m., in the 9000 block of Gap Newport Pike, in New Garden Township. Police on routine patrol observed the vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on Gap Newport Pike. As police followed the vehicle, the registration plate was being lit by non-regulation lights and the vehicle failed to maintain its lane of travel.

• Juan J. Hernandez Jr., 19, of Avondale was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, robbery, false imprisonment, terroristic threats, strangulation, resisting arrest, and harassment, following an incident on March 17, according to a police report. At approximately 12:33 p.m., police were dispatched to the 9100 block of Gap Newport Pike, in New Garden Township. Upon arrival, police found Hernandez standing in the doorway of the residence blocking the victim from leaving. A witness at the scene reported that Hernandez had been physically restraining the juvenile victim from leaving. The victim reported that Hernandez had forced her to unlock her cell phone so that he could go through it. He reportedly withheld it from her for over two hours and would not allow her to call police. He then reportedly threw the victim to the ground and choked her until she could no longer breathe. Police said they saw evidence corroborating the victim’s account. When police attempted to take Hernandez into custody, he struggled and resisted their efforts to handcuff him. He was eventually taken into custody. He was processed and was held for arraignment, after which he was initially committed to the Chester County Prison, in lieu of posting bail.
