Franklin City Police say a Franklin man has been charged after he allegedly assaulted an employee of a Franklin care facility last week.

Police claim 44 year-old Sammy Walker grabbed a woman by her throat and pushed her against a wall.  Ironically, the incident apparently ended when Walker suffered some sort of seizure.

Officials identified Walker as a visitor to the care home.

Police say Walker was later charged with simple assault and with harassment.  He was lodged in the Venango County Jail on $25,000 bail, but was later transported to a Pittsburgh hospital for treatment of a medical condition..
