Hearing Set for Next Week for Local Man Accused of Threatening Victim With Baseball Bat

PUNXSUTAWNEY BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – A hearing has been scheduled for next week for a local man accused of threatening a victim with a baseball bat.

Court documents indicate 22-year-old Broc N. Marche, of Brockway, is scheduled to stand for a preliminary hearing in front of Magisterial District Judge Jacqueline J. Mizerock at 11:30 a.m. on September 21 on one first-degree misdemeanor count of Terroristic Threats With Intent to Terrorize Another.

The charge stems from an incident in Punxsutawney in August.

According to a criminal complaint, around 4:00 p.m. on August 14, Punxsutawney Borough Police were dispatched to a residence on Foundry Street for a report of an assault.

According to the complaint, a known male victim told police that Broc Marche had threatened to “beat him with a baseball bat.”

The victim reportedly stated Marche also made other threats involving harming him with a baseball bat. He also provided police with a video of the incident.

The video showed Marche standing on the sidewalk in front of the victim’s home threatening the victim with a baseball bat, the complaint indicates.

In the video, there were also reportedly several other people trying to hold Marche back and taking the baseball bat from him.

When police spoke to March, he told them that the victim “records them when they are outside, and he is tired of it.” He also reportedly stated the victim laughed at him and said he “just had enough,” according to the complaint.

The charge was filed against Marche through Magisterial District Judge Jacqueline J. Mizerock’s office on August 30.
