By: Sarah Rebb

ALLEGHENY TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Police said Friday around 5 p.m. Joseph Chonko got into a verbal argument with a 74-year-old woman and a 78-year-old man, which led to a physical argument near the 2000 block of Smith Road Fairhope in Somerset County.

Chonko allegedly grabbed the woman and threw a cast iron pan at the man.

Police said Chonko then threatened the woman, saying he was going to slit her throat, and also pointed a rifle at her before shooting into the air.

Chonko was taken into custody without incident, and arraigned and committed to Somerset County Jail with a $15,000 bond.
