A York man wanted for an assault at a Stewartstown gas station last year has surrendered to authorities.

Eric Dennis Tereo, 28, turned himself in to a district judge this morning and was arraigned on charges of simple assault, harassment and disorderly conduct, according to Southern York County Regional police.

His bail at York County Prison was set at $10,000 cash.

Tereo on Nov. 19 allegedly knocked down a 76-year-old Hopewell Township man, who was warning a cashier not to smoke near the pumps of the Sunoco gas station at 62 N. Main Street, then spit in the victim's face , police said.

The elderly man was transported by ambulance to a hospital for treatment of a broken rib, a head injury, and bruises to his chest and hip.
