An 18-year-old Westmoreland County man was charged with several felony counts and was placed in the Westmoreland County Prison following an altercation with his girlfriend's father.

Pennsylvania state police at Kiski Valley said Joseph Stoll Jr. of Irwin showed up at the home of Dana Rodericks, 40, of Delmont, at about 1:30 p.m. Saturday and got involved in a verbal altercation with Mr. Rodericks. Police said Mr. Rodericks asked Mr. Stoll to leave, at which time a physical confrontation ensued.

Police said Mr. Stoll initially drove away but returned with a shotgun and threatened to kill Mr. Rodericks. That's when Mr. Rodericks daughter, who was not identified by police, got between her boyfriend and her father and persuaded her boyfriend to leave.

Police have filed charges against Mr. Stoll that include aggravated and simple assault, terroristic threats, and recklessly endangering another person.
