The Ambler Borough Police Department has announced the arrest of 45-year-old Barry Lonon of Philadelphia for attempted sexual assault and several related charges.

According to the notice, police were called to the 100 block of North Main Street on May 20th at 4:23 p.m. At the scene, police learned that Lonon had attempted to sexually assault a victim after forcing his way into her residence. The notice then states that Lonon punched and kicked the victim resulting in scratches and swelling. He also threw her phone in an effort to prevent her from calling 911. He attempted to resist arrest when officers took him into custody.

Once in custody, officers completed a Mental Health Warrant on Lonon and he was picked up by Montgomery County Emergency Services. He was later released back to Ambler Police Department’s custody and taken to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility for his preliminary arraignment. Lonon was arraigned and remanded on $25,000 cash bail (which he was unable to post). He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Judge Zaffarano’s District Court on July 8, 2022.
