Police: Punxsy Man Threatens to Slit Man Throat

PUNXSUTAWNEY BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – A Punxsutawney man is accused of threatening to slit a man’s throat during an altercation in the Borough of Punxsutawney.

According to court documents, the Punxsutawney Borough Police Department filed the following criminal charges against 35-year-old Raymond Guy Marsh, of Punxsutawney, on September 4:

– Terroristic Threats W/Intent To Terrorize Another, Misdemeanor 1
– Simple Assault, Misdemeanor 2
– Disorderly Conduct Engage In Fighting, Misdemeanor 3

The charges stem from an incident that occurred on Lane Avenue, in Punxsutawney Borough, Jefferson County, on Friday, August 23, involving Raymond Marsh.

According to a criminal complaint filed on September 4 by Officer Wittenburg, of the Punxsutawney Borough Police Department, around 7:45 p.m. on August 23, as a known man entered his truck in an attempt to avoid contact with Raymond Marsh, Marsh stepped off the sidewalk and began yelling at him: “I’m going to kill you if I ever see you near (a known woman) again, I’m going to slit your throat!” the complaint indicates.

While yelling these threats on the public street, Marsh was allegedly attempting to grab a sledgehammer that was sticking up out of the bed of the victim’s truck, according to the complaint.

As the victim accelerated to get away from Marsh, Marsh began to chase after him as he traveled south on Lane Avenue. Marsh ended his pursuit of the victim as the victim turned west on East Mahoning Street.

A preliminary hearing for Marsh is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on October 3 in front of Magisterial District Judge Jacqueline J. Mizerock.

A certified summons was issued on September 4.
