gavelCLARION CO., Pa. (EYT) – A Rimersburg man who allegedly struck and bit his father and threatened to kill him waived his hearing in court on Tuesday.

Court documents indicate the following charges against 26-year-old Perry James Kriebel were waived for court on Tuesday, May 25:

– Terroristic Threats With Intent To Terrorize Another, Misdemeanor 1
– Simple Assault, Misdemeanor 2

– Harassment – Subject Other to Physical Contact, Summary

The charges have been transferred to the Clarion County Court of Common Pleas.

Kriebel is currently free on $50,000.00 unsecured bail.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred in Rimersburg earlier this month.

Details of the case:

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.

Police then spoke with the victim of the incident.

The victim reported that Kriebel had attacked him, striking him in the face, biting him on his left and right arms, and striking him in the face with a metal “bolt” approximately three to four inches in length, causing his mouth to bleed, according to the complaint.

According to the criminal complaint, Kriebel picked up a metal shovel and threatened to kill his father. Kriebel then left the residence and was walking on Main Street in Rimersburg.

Kriebel was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Jeffrey C. Miller at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 12.
