Report: Schwenksville Couple Threatened with Weapon

SKIPPACK PA – A 38-year-old Schwenksville man who allegedly threatened two elderly people with a weapon, and then reportedly attempted to assault law enforcers who responded to the incident, has been arrested for felony aggravated assault and several other charges, Pennsylvania State Police at the Troop K Barracks in Skippack said.

Troopers stated they were called July 10 (Saturday) at 3:16 p.m. to a Spencer Drive, Skippack Township property to investigate an active domestic dispute. Upon arriving they found the suspect, who they claimed was intoxicated, had threatened a 74-year-old man and a 77-year-old woman with an unidentified weapon. Both victims also live in Schwenksville, according to the report.

During the incident, it added, the suspect also “attempted to assault troopers on (the) scene.”

The man was taken into custody and arraigned that day. A scheduled preliminary hearing was waived, and the case has been moved to Montgomery County Court, according to court records. He tentatively is charged with 13 separate offenses that also include simple assault, making terroristic threats, harassment, disorderly conduct, and possessing an instrument of crime.

At the time of his arraignment he was remanded to the Montgomery County jail after being unable to post a $7,500 cash bail.
