DuBois Burger King Attack Suspect Caught, Jailed


CLEARFIELD – The DuBois man wanted for allegedly attacking a Burger King employee in Sandy Township last week has been caught, arrested, and jailed.

According to the Clearfield County DA’s Office, 59-year-old Richard Smeal was apprehended by State Police in the Janesville area Tuesday afternoon.

Smeal is currently being held in the Clearfield County Jail awaiting a preliminary hearing.

Police say Smeal attacked the victim in the restaurant’s parking lot and demanded she give him the night deposit money. When she refused, Smeal reportedly hit the victim in the head with his closed fists and an air-soft gun, causing injuries.
