Troopers Report Road Rage, Domestic Injury, Supply Theft

SKIPPACK PA – An incident of alleged road rage in Upper Frederick, a Green Lane domestic dispute that resulted in physical injury, and the report of a supply theft involving a well-known home builder all were handled by Pennsylvania State Police from the Troop K Barracks in Skippack, according to public information releases distributed Thursday (Oct. 14, 2021).

Road rage in Upper Frederick

A 64-year-old Lederach man was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and recklessly endangering another person following an investigation Oct. 9 (Saturday) at 7:26 a.m. at the intersection of Big and Krause roads in Upper Frederick Township, state police reported.

The man “was deemed to have made intentional impact” with a vehicle occupied by a 23-year-old man from Perkiomenville and an 18-year-old woman from Boyertown, troopers said. After the collision, they added, the Lederach man “blocked the victims’ vehicle in” and prevented it from leaving. Nothing in the report indicated what sparked the alleged “road rage,” which troopers said involved a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe and a 2008 Audi.

The arrested man was charged in the Gilbertsville courtroom of Magisterial District Justice Maurice Saylor, they added.

Green Lane domestic dispute

What began Oct. 8 (Friday) at 9:30 p.m. as a verbal argument between a 35-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman, both residents of Main Street in Green Lane Borough, escalated into an alleged assault, according to troopers. The male, later arrested, was accused of assaulting the woman and “causing physical injury.” The female victim required treatment at Grand View Hospital, they said.

After being taken into custody, charges were filed in the Red Hill courtroom of Justice Maureen Coggins. The alleged assailant faced preliminary arraignment and then was transported to the Montgomery County Jail in Eagleville PA, according to troopers.

Builder supply theft

Trespassing and an alleged “theft of lumber” from luxury home builder Toll Brothers Construction of Norristown, at a site on Skippack Pike in Worcester Township, were reported to troopers Oct. 7 (Thursday) at 10:40 a.m. State police said their “investigation is ongoing;” there was no indication suspects had yet been identified.

However, troopers identified a 2007 Chevrolet Equinox sport-utility vehicle as being potentially involved. They did not describe how.
