Shenandoah Man Locked up in Schuylkill County Prison After Overnight Incident


A Shenandoah man is locked up in Schuylkill County Prison after an overnight incident on Lloyd Street.
According to Shenandoah Police, just before 1:00 am, Officers Adam Sajone and William Moyer responded to 107 East Lloyd Street, Shenandoah for a report of a male refusing to leave the property.

Police said as the officers arrived and while knocking on the front door of the home, two ten-inch kitchen knives and a Glock 44 handgun were thrown from a second-floor window into the street.

Sajone and Moyer made entry into the home where they made contact with several people.

An investigation revealed that Alejando Duran, 40, of Shenandoah had been in an argument with his wife,

The wife made contact with her mother, and when she arrived at the home, as she knocked on the door, she could hear Duran chambering a round into a pistol.

Duran then opened the front door and got into a verbal argument with the wife's mother. Throughout the argument with his mother-in-law, Duran was reported to have been holding the gun.

Duran then reportedly went upstairs to put the gun away, and when he returned downstairs, he began to argue with the mother-in-law again and grabbed her by the throat.

The mother-in-law told police she was unable to breathe and that she hurt her neck.

At this point during the argument, the wife's brother arrived at the home, Duran was reported to have retrieved the two large kitchen knives making a stabbing motion at the brother-in-law.

Duran then put the knives down and the wife was able to take them and thrown them out the second-floor window to get them away from him.

As a result of the investigation and incident, Duran was taken into custody and charged with strangulation, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, and harassment.

Duran was arraigned by on-call Magisterial District Judge Stephen Bayer and locked up in Schuylkill County Prison unable to post the $50,000 Straight cash bail.
