I scream, you scream, we all scream for frozen urine.
You have to hand it to Jack & Jill ice cream for their unique approach. No one ever thought of actually having the kids run screaming toward the alleged drunk driver before.
Four masked gunmen who a check cashing courier says carjacked him in broad daylight on a side street in Levittown’s Quincy Hollow section Wednesday have yet to be identified or apprehended.
Melvin Howard, one of three Democrats seeking party nomination to run in the 141st District State House of Representatives race, may be ineligible for office due to a prior conviction on theft by deception charges.
While you were busy living your life, the suburban Delaware Valley appears to have descended into a state of criminally induced chaos.
Police from several municipalities responded to an apparent Naked Jogger sighting in Nockamixon Park late Friday morning, but the individual managed to give authorities the slip and remained at large after a two hour search.
A naked man twice approached a woman walking along a trail in Nockamixon State Park in Upper Bucks County, an official said.
The incident at Nockamixon State Park occurred Monday, the same day a naked man ran up to a female jogger on New Hope Road in Buckingham, put her in a bear hug for about a minute and committed a lewd act.
A naked, bald man attacked a female jogger on New Hope Road in Buckingham early Monday afternoon.
Police said a woman jogging on the road between Route 413 and Holicong Road was attacked from behind by a naked man. Police are investigating the incident as a sexual assault.
The woman said her attacker got her in a bear hug and lifted her upright. He then released her and ran to Holicong Road where he got into a silver sport utility vehicle, believed to be a Jeep Liberty. Police said the vehicle had a Pennsylvania license plate, but the victim could not get the tag number.
The man is described as between 30 to 35 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, bald, medium build and clean shaven.
I checked, and Doylestown native Michael Smerconish is considerably older than that. You know, due dilligence. It would be much easier to be on the lookout for the suspect if the Courier-Times decided to tell us what race bald man we should be looking out for.
Apparently, this is not the first “naked man in public” incident in Bucks County this month.
The incident sounds similar to one that occurred in Middletown last week.
Middletown police said that on Nov. 11 a man wearing only a pair of socks was seen on Red Berry Road. Police said the man was described as a white male with a medium build and balding. He was last seen in a small silver SUV.
Definitely a white guy there.
Are police really having a lot of trouble spotting naked guys in socks running around the suburbs when driving around on their patrols? Unsolicited Tip: If you see a naked guy driving a Jeep Liberty in the middle of November, pull him over.
Is Bucks County becoming the bank robbery capital of Pennsylvania? According to the Courier-Times, the Citizen’s Bank at Middletown’s 413 and New Falls Road intersection was robbed this morning. The Lower Southampton Fulton Bank was robbed yesterday. There have been several other bank robberies in the area as well.
Apparently unrelated, police from several local departments and county officials descended on a nearby apartment building to protect residents from a suicidal gun-wielding man reportedly barricaded inside who, as it turns out, was at work at the time and apparently neither suicidal nor armed.
I feel safe. Maybe it’s time to descend on the banks and leave the empty apartments undefended.
In certain circles, vandalizing a place of worship by spray-painting slogans that are antagonistic to the religion practiced there and destroying or defacing religious artifacts would be considered a hate crime. Not if that place of worship happens to be a Catholic parish in Levittown, though.
