Enon man facing multiple charges

NEW CASTLE — An Enon Valley man who allegedly pointed a shotgun at his sister and her family now faces a dozen charges.

John Hills Raisley, 49, of 851 Clark Road, is charged with public drunkenness, three counts of recklessly endangering another person, and two counts each of terroristic threats, simple assault, harassment and disorderly conduct.

He was arraigned before District Judge Jerry Cartwright and released on nonmonetary bond. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 20.

According to court documents, Raisley, who apparently was intoxicated, had gone to a Little Beaver Township home several times Sunday night and Monday morning, screaming threats and obscenities.

When the occupants of the house attempted to leave to go to work at 5:30 a.m. Monday, court papers said, Raisley was outside with a shotgun and threatened to shoot them.

The victims contacted Pennsylvania state police who filed charges.

Penguins, in six or seven games. It’s a pretty even matchup on defense, but Pittsburgh will grind it out.
Blue Jackets, in five games or fewer. Sergei Bobrovsky in goal for the Blue Jackets spells trouble for the Pens.
Blue Jackets, in six or seven games. Bobrovsky gives Columbus the edge, but it won’t be easy.
