Troy McCoy

A Bucks County jury found a New York couple guilty on Friday, July 9, 2021, of assaulting a 17-year-old Sesame Place employee last summer, leaving the teen with several injuries, including a broken jaw. 

Troy McCoy, 40, of Bronx, N.Y., was found guilty of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, simple assault, harassment, and disorderly conduct. Shakerra Bonds, 32, also from Bronx, N.Y., was found guilty of simple assault and disorderly conduct. 

The verdict comes after a 4-day trial before President Judge Wallace H. Bateman Jr. in the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas. 

Bateman ordered a pre-sentence investigation for McCoy and Bonds. After the verdict, McCoy’s bail was revoked, and Bonds was ordered held on $250,000 bail, 10 percent. 

The assault happened on Aug. 9, 2020, after the teen spotted McCoy waiting in line for a ride and asked him to wear his mask, which was the policy at the theme park at the time. McCoy became angry and began yelling at him and the teen walked away to avoid a confrontation.
