EASTON, Pa. -

A man hurt three people, including a woman who he said wasn't answering his text messages, when he tried to barge into a home, officials said.

Darren L. Fisher first injured Larry Folkner and then Sandra Folkner when he tried to push his way into their home at 1211 Ferry St., Easton, around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, and when Kristilyn Folkner shoved him out the door, he threw her down four concrete steps, officials said.

Police found the Folkners all bleeding when they arrived -- Larry from a cut left elbow, Sandra from cuts to her right arm and Kristilyn from a cut left elbow and hand, officials said.

The altercation began when Larry Folkner opened his front door to confront Fisher, who was outside screaming and yelling that Kristilyn Folkner wasn't returning his texts, officials said.

Court papers do not say how the three injured victims are related, but note that Kristilyn and Sandra Folkner had a joint protection from abuse order against Fisher, who fled the scene before police arrived.

Fisher, 26, of 536 Bushkill Drive, Easton, was arraigned on charges of burglary, assault and harassment and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $30,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. Sept. 11.
