One adult and one juvenile were arrested Monday after they allegedly forced their way into a home in Limerick and assaulted a boy and his sister.

York County sheriff’s deputies responded to a reported home invasion on Maple Street in Limerick shortly after 3 p.m. They were told that two males forced their way in and confronted the boy over a prior disagreement, according to a press release from the sheriff’s office.

The two then assaulted the boy and his sister, who tried to intervene. Both siblings were taken to a local hospital but were not seriously injured.

After a brief investigation, deputies arrested Joseph A. Bagdanovich Jr., 19, of Limerick on a charge of burglary. He also will face charges of assault and criminal mischief at his initial court appearance, which is scheduled for Tuesday.

An identified juvenile, who allegedly assisted Bagdanovich, also was charged with burglary, assault and criminal mischief. He was released to his parents.
