An amateur knife thrower, a shooter and a "missile" launcher pierced the air in Delaware County last week with their respective weapons, according to state police.
Around 8:15 p.m. Monday, a 42-year-old man from Woolwich Township, N.J., was driving on I-95 in Tinicum Township minding his own business when someone threw an unknown object on his car from the Route 420 overpass, state police said.
The object, which was not detailed in the news release, shattered the sun roof of the man's car. Police are looking for the person or persons responsible for the incident, which they have listed on a news release as "propulsion of missiles into occupied vehicle."
On Thanksgiving Day at around 3:30 p.m., state police responded to a Concord Township home where a 42-year-old Glen Mills woman was throwing knives at a 43-year-old Glen Mills man as he tried to leave the residence. The victim had several minor cuts to his back, but refused medical attention. He was probably thankful for dull knives on this Thanksgiving.
Police said they charged the woman, whose identity was not released, with simple assault and related offenses. The nature of the argument was a domestic dispute, according to police.
On Saturday at around 10:45 p.m., a 46-year-old man who was driving with a 43-year-old female passenger on I-95 in Chester, just north of the Kerlin Street exit, was shot at by someone in a vehicle who was passing him on his left, police said. The man swerved and struck a guardrail, but neither he nor his passenger was injured by gunfire.
Anyone with information on any of these incidents is urged to call state police at 484-840-1000.
