A Plumstead Township man was convicted Thursday, April 20, 2023, of ethnic intimidation and harassment for a racist rant against an AT&T employee and then later pulling a gun on him.
Tony Ngo, 35, was found guilty by Common Pleas Judge Stephen A. Corr during a waiver trial. The judge then sentenced Ngo to two years of probation and 50 hours of community service and ordered him to have no contact with the victim and the AT&T store at the Cross Keys Place shopping center in Plumstead Township. His firearm was also ordered held pending a forfeiture motion.
During sentencing, Corr called Ngo’s behavior unacceptable.
The incident was reported on Sept. 26, 2022, when Plumstead Township Police officers were dispatched at 7:08 p.m. to the AT&T at 4341 Swamp Road on a report of a man with a gun. When police arrived, the man, later identified as Ngo, was no longer on scene.
