Neshannock lockdown canceled after suspect captured

NEW CASTLE — A lockdown at the Neshannock schools was canceled early Friday afternoon after an assault suspect was captured by police.

The assault had nothing to do with the schools and instead occurred in the Pulaski area. But the suspect was followed to Neshannock Township, where he fled into the woods near Mitchell and Wilmington roads.

Police were seeking the suspect for several hours before he was captured. During that time, Neshannock schools went into lockdown as a precaution. There were no incidents on school property.
