A 13-year-old Stewartstown-area boy escaped with bruises after a driver intentionally backed over him Tuesday, then yelled that the boy has "got a problem now," according to state police.

Robert Joseph Urbanski Jr., 48, of 62 Kings Way in Stewartstown, is in York County Prison on $10,000 bail, charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment and reckless driving.

The boy and two of his friends were on Lee Street at Hershey Circle at the boundary of Stewartstown and Hopewell Township about 5:10 p.m. Tuesday when a blue Honda Accord drove past them, driven by Urbanski, according to charging documents filed by state police.

Boy struck: After driving past the boys, Urbanski stopped, put his car in reverse and backed up toward the boys, hitting and knocking over the 13-year-old while he was on his bicycle, police said.

One of the boy's friends later told troopers he saw the rear tire of the Accord roll over the victim's left elbow, documents state.

Urbanski then yelled, "You guys got a problem now" and took off, documents allege.

The 13-year-old suffered bruising and his bicycle was damaged, police said. Troopers said he lives in Hopewell Township; his name was not released.

Tracked down: Someone was able to give troopers a partial license-plate number for the Accord, which was later identified as belonging to Urbanski, documents state.


State police said they went to Urbanski's home two hours after the boy was struck and noticed the Accord had a scratch on the bumper.

Urbanski initially told troopers he'd been at home for about 12 hours, but later said he was "out all day running errands," documents state.

Urbanski was arrested after the 13-year-old and one of his friends positively identified him as being the driver who backed into them, police said.

It is unclear whether Urbanski has hired an attorney.
