A Clairton man is being held in the Allegheny County Jail in lieu of bond after McKeesport police charged him with burglarizing two houses in the 2900 block of Versailles Avenue.

David D. Foster, 43, is charged by McKeesport police with burglary, criminal trespass, receiving stolen property, theft by unlawful taking, criminal mischief and possessing instruments of crime. He faces formal arraignment at 9 a.m. Feb. 16 before Allegheny County Judge Jeffrey Manning.

Police said officers responded to a burglary report on Nov. 6 at a house in the 2900 block of Versailles. As they searched the area, they spotted an open window at a neighboring house, and went inside, where they found two stolen TV sets, with remote controls, along with a screwdriver and a pair of gloves.

As city police Detective Schelley Gould started up the stairs, the suspected burglar leapt out of an upstairs window and was seriously injured.

The suspect, identified by police as Foster, was taken to UPMC McKeesport hospital and released into police custody following treatment. A police report did not detail the extent of Foster's injuries.

Charges were filed by McKeesport police Dec. 7 and Foster was ordered held for court on Tuesday by Pittsburgh Municipal Court Judge James A. Motznik.
