A Utica man faces a preliminary hearing today after having been charged with the intimidation of a witness.

Franklin City Police have also charged 18 year-old Tyler Brown with the corruption of a minor.

Police say the intimidation charge stems from an incident April 27 at Franklin’s 11th Street Playground.  The alleged victim was identified only as a juvenile.

Police officials say previous charges against Brown include making terroristic threats, trespassing, hindering prosecution and harassment.

Following his arraignment on the latest charges, Brown was placed in the Venango County Jail with his bail set at $50,000.
