MOUNT UNION, Pa. (WTAJ) — A Mount Union man is behind bars after police said he attacked a neighbor with a knife and also made inappropriate comments to a 9-year-old girl.
Mount Union Police said they were called to a home on June 25, just after midnight. 29-year-old Justin Snook reportedly made a comment to a 9-year-old about how “guys like to do things with little girls,” then grabbed her by the arm earlier that day.
The child’s mother said it’s not the first time he’s done this, the complaint reads. She’s reportedly told Snook in the past to stay away from her property.
While investigating the incident, a gentleman told police that he went to talk to Snook but Snook came at him with a knife and he had cuts on his head, shoulder and arm. He told police that Snook tried stabbing him and the two began to wrestle. Snook then ran back to his home. The man said Snook kept yelling “I’LL KILL YOU” as he ran away. Mount Union police were able to photograph the man’s cuts.
