Attempted murder charge filed in Pa.

McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. - A Mount Union, Pa., man was charged with attempted murder and other crimes last week, Pennsylvania State Police said.

Perry Henderson, 37, went to the McConnellsburg home of acquaintances Timothy J. Peck, 20, and his father, Alvin T. Peck, 39, on July 17 and demanded money from Timothy Peck, police said in a news release.

When Timothy Peck said he didn't have money, Henderson attacked him with a knife and said he would kill him if he didn't get money, police alleged.

Timothy Peck was wounded as Henderson stole $260, police said.

Police said Henderson also slapped Alvin Peck and punctured a tire on his 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera.

Police have asked anyone with information about Henderson's whereabouts to call them at 717-485-3131.

The line between life and death is so thin I think you could use some back up.
