According to a criminal complaint, New Bethlehem Borough Police were dispatched to a residence on Mill Street in Rimersburg Borough around 5:01 p.m. on Wednesday, May 12, for a report of a physical domestic between a father and his son.

A known witness told police that Perry Kriebel had “attacked” his father and “was dangerous.” The witness reportedly stated that Perry had then left the residence with a metal shovel and said she “did not know if he would hurt himself or someone else,” according to the complaint.

New Bethlehem Borough Police then received notification that Kriebel had been apprehended by Pennsylvania State Police on Main Street in Rimersburg.
