Two Tyrone men arrested for mugging

Tyrone Police arrested two men last week they say assaulted and robbed a Tyrone man in late September.
Curtis Ramsey, 22, and Eric Fredrick D. Campbell, 24, both of Tyrone, were arraigned last week and lodged in Blair County Prison in lieu of $30,000 straight bail each.
Ramsey was arrested October 26 by Tyrone Police on an unrelated burglary charge, while Campbell already was in jail on an unrelated detainer.
Police say the two men jumped Wilbur Miller Jr. at the intersection of Garfield Street and Stony Point Alley in Tyrone during the early morning hours of September 20.
According to the affidavit, Campbell told police that Ramsey said he “rocked” Miller’s world and that “he only hit Wilbur Miller one time.”
As a result of the punch, Miller had a large laceration on the back of his head and abrasions on his arm. He was treated at the Tyrone Hospital for a concussion and had stitches to the back of his head.
Police first believed that the men used a weapon to injure Miller, but it is now believed Miller hit his head on the pavement after Ramsey knocked him to the ground.
Miller was robbed of about $400, and Campbell threw Miller’s wallet into a nearby creek, according to police.
Ramsey and Campbell were arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Fred Miller.
Both men face seven counts including three first-degree felonies, ranging from aggravated assault and robbery with serious bodily injury to simple assault and theft by unlawful taking.
Ramsey waived his preliminary hearing last Tuesday, and Campbell is set to appear before Judge Miller November 13.
Ramsey also waived another preliminary hearing Tuesday on a separate complaint that he burglarized a Tyrone residence a week before the mugging.
Tyrone Police state Ramsey broke a window and entered a residence on the 100 block of East 13th Street. Once inside, he stole a digital camera, a blender, a PlayStation 2, CDs, a DVD player and various other items.
Ramsey faces multiple felony and misdemeanors in that incident. He is being held in lieu of $15,000 cash bail.
