Excellent police work, PAPD! Glad to hear this guy is off the streets. The poor kid must have been scared out of his wits by the guy.

Not a “pocket knife” It was a four inch switch blade! In other words, a deadly weapon that it meant to threaten, harm, injure, maim ... God help this town’s lack of community resources. and Thank God the teen was not physically harmed. Yet. Psychological damage is unknown. Invest in our kids!!
