Tyrone Borough Police were dispatched to the 800 block of park avenue at about 10 pm.

They searched numerous places throughout the night, before locating Wrye early this morning at snappy’s in Bald Eagle.

After a brief foot chase, they apprehended him.

A Park Avenue resident says this type of attack is troubling in a neighborhood that’s usually quiet.

“Pretty taken aback with it because this neighborhood there’s a lot of children, lot of families and the kids are always up and down playing and to have something like that happen it’s just kind of a shock.”

Wrye was arraigned on charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and related offenses.

His bail was set at $500,00 straight bail.
