    SOUTH BURLINGTON — Police say a third man sought for assault in a protest at Vermont Gas in South Burlington has turned himself in.

    Police say Willy B. Levitt, of Hardwick, was issued a citation Tuesday to appear in court July 22 on a charge of simple assault.

    A group that opposes a Vermont Gas natural gas pipeline to extend service to Addison and Rutland counties protested outside of the company’s headquarters on May 27.

    Police said two protesters went to the roof to display a banner while other demonstrators distracted a receptionist.

    Police say employees asked the protesters to move to the public sidewalk but they refused and then pushed an employee and struck her with a large chain as they were trying to chain a fellow protester to the front door.
