Man held on $200,000 bond accused of assaulting coach

Posted: Updated:

SHARON, Pa. - The man accused of assaulting a local high school football coach is now behind bars.

Thirty-eight-year-old Joseph Koscinski was released from the Sharon Regional Health System around 8am Friday morning.

That's where Koscinski has been receiving medical treatment and a psychological evaluation since the incident on Sunday.

Koscinski was transported from the hospital and taken to court to appear before Magisterial District Judge Denis Songer for his initial appearance or arraignment.

Sharon Police have charged Koscinski with aggravated assault, burglary, terroristic threats, and recklessly endangering another person.

The former Sharon football player is accused of attacking Sharon Football Coach James Wildman inside his home on Sunday, August 11th.

The fight continued out into the coach's front yard, and Wildman suffered serious injuries to his face, neck and ear.

The attack was stopped by neighbors and an off-duty Sharon Police Officer.

Koscinski was immediately arrested and charged, but was taken to Sharon Regional Health System after the arrest.

As he appeared in court, the Judge ordered Koscinski to be held on $200,000 bond.

Koscinski is scheduled to appear in court again next week.

What's still unclear is a motive.
