WILKES-BARRE — A Wilkes-Barre man is facing a handful of charges stemming from an alleged harassment incident which apparently came after an ongoing dispute.

Court records show Frank Isaac, 41, was arraigned Sunday morning on a felony charge of strangulation, along with a misdemeanor assault charge and a summary harassment charge.

According to Wilkes-Barre police, a 35-year-old woman reported that Isaac was attempting to force his way into her North Washington Street home just before 5 a.m. Sunday.

The woman, whose name was not provided in the press release, told police Isaac threatened to kill her, saying it was apparently due to a dispute between her and Isaac.

Police say they located Isaac and took him into custody without incident.

He was also arraigned Sunday on a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana.

Records show Magisterial District Judge Thomas F. Malloy set Isaac’s bail at $75,000. He remains locked up as he was unable to post bail.
