Two Men in Custody After Attempted Knife Attack in Girardville

Two men were taken into custody on Wednesday afternoon after an alleged attempted assault with a knife.

According to the Pennsylvania State Police at Frackville, around 12:50pm, Troopers were dispatched to 18 North Williams Street in Girardville for an attempted assault with a knife.

At the scene, they were met by Edward Brown, 58, of Doylestown, who told State Troopers that Edward Conapitski, 22, of Girardville attempted to attack him a knife.

Brown told police that before their arrival, Conapitski fled into the nearby Unity Market.

A background check of Brown indicated he had multiple warrants for his arrest.  While attempting to take him into custody, he became combative and attempted to punch one of the State Troopers on scene.  Brown was physically restrained and taken into custody.

Conapitski was also located and taken into custody for the attempted assault.
