The charges stem from an incident that occurred on Aug. 25 at around 1:30 a.m. in the 1100 block of Pine Court in Jackson Township. Investigators allege that Harvey struck and strangled a 17-year-old girl. 

Harvey was arraigned before Magisterial Court Judge Thomas J. Reilly Wednesday. Harvey’s bail was set at $25,000. 

A preliminary hearing for Harvey on the charges is scheduled for Sept. 29.
