State police arrested a teenage boy in Butler County this evening after they said he threatened his family members and later led troopers to a bayonet and a rifle he'd stashed in the woods.
State police in Butler wrote in a news release that they were called to Middendorf Street in Marion about 2 p.m. for a report that a 17-year-old boy "pointed an AK-type rifle" at four family members -- ages 1 to 54 -- and "told them they had 10 minutes to leave the house."
When someone told the boy that police were on their way, he ran into the woods. Troopers said they found him about three hours later, when he surrendered, unarmed at the edge of the woods. The boy then led troopers through the woods, pointing them to a rifle, a bayonet and six live rounds of ammunition.
Police said they plan to charge the boy as a juvenile with making terroristic threats, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.
