HARRISBURG, Pa. – Kyair Watson, accused of Indecent Assault of an Unconscious person, is ordered to stand trial following a hearing on Wednesday where the victim testified.  The charges arise from an incident on April 30th.

The victim and another individual were at Watson’s house for a get together.  The victim and the other parties had been drinking throughout the night.  The victim fell asleep, and awoke some time later because he felt Watson’s hand under his clothing, fondling him.  Watson had pulled down his pants and exposed himself to the victim.

A fight ensued, and the victim was stabbed in the foot, requiring stitches.  The victim went to Harrisburg Hospital for treatment.

Watson is also charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Simple Assault, and Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor.
