LOYSVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police have charged two employees of the Loysville Youth Development Center following an alleged assault of a juvenile resident.

Authorities are charging 40-year-old Shane May Elliottsburg with endangering the welfare of children, simple assault, unsworn falsification to authorities and intimidation of witnesses or victims.

May is a counselor supervisor working in one of the housing units at the LYDC. On Feb. 13 at around 1:45 p.m., May was meeting with the 16-year-old male resident from Lehigh County.

They met in the office of the Dean of Students to discuss an issue with another resident. May is accused of forcing the victim from a chair onto the ground and striking him with elbows and knees.

The victim reported having a sore head and a bloody nose. May is also accused of intimidating the victim in an effort to dissuade him from filing charges and making a false written statement in which he denied the incident.

Police are also charging 34-year-old Brandon Beddia of New Bloomfield, who is the Dean of Students at the LYDC on-site school. Beddia was not involved in the assault, but authorities say he witnessed the incident. He is being charged with endangering the welfare of children and unsworn falsification to authorities.
