Johnnie Tirado

A York City man was assaulted by another man after two people followed him to his apartment recently, according to police.

York City Police said Johnnie Tirado, 21, and Aysha Brito, 22, followed the man Aug. 28 into his apartment building in the 100 block of North George Street. Then Tirado allegedly assaulted the man outside his door. 

About two hours after the  assault, the two returned to the man's apartment and tried to get in, court documents allege.

The two were arrested Aug. 29.

Tirado, of no fixed address, is charged with burglary, aggravated assault and trespassing, all of which are felonies, as well as two misdemeanor counts of simple assault.

Brito, of the 200 block of South Penn Street, is charged with conspiracy to commit burglary and trespassing, both of which are felonies.

Incident: Police said the victim was walking into his apartment building about 11 p.m.  when Tirado and Brito followed him in.

Tirado, wearing a black hoodie and white mask, and Brito, wearing her hood pulled tightly around her face, followed the man to his front door, court documents allege.

Tirado pulled a knife on the victim and told him to come with him down the hallway, but the victim refused, according to police.

Tirado made jabbing motions with the knife toward the man, while Brito got behind the victim, charging documents state. The victim was cut by the knife at one point, according to authorities,

When the victim looked toward Brito, Tirado punched him in the face, and the two fled, police said.

The victim got into his apartment and locked the door. Police said about two hours later, Tirado and Brito knocked on his door, and the victim could see them scratching the door with something.

Police were called, and when they arrived they saw Tirado, Brito and another person fleeing the area, according to court documents.

Brito was taken into custody and told police she was there because the victim had inappropriately touched an acquaintance of hers, police said.

In 2017, Tirado pleaded guilty to a robbery that took place in York City, according to online court records. In August 2017, he was sentenced to two to four years in prison, with credit for 197 days he spent in York County Prison.

Their preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 20 at District Judge Joel Toluba's office.
