A Rayburn woman faces several charges after allegedly entering a Boggs Township home with a loaded rifle while in search of a New Bethlehem man.

Angelecia Ruth Peters, 19, of Lower Hayes Road, is charged with burglary, simple assault and making terroristic threats. She is accused of entering a home on Mountain Trails Road, looking for Logan Scott, 20, of New Bethlehem and carrying a loaded Remington Model 770 .243 rifle.

According to a state police report, Tawnya Crawford, 39, of New Bethlehem confronted Peters as she entered the home. Peters allegedly threatened to kill Crawford, who wrestled the firearm away from Peters.

Crawford pushed Peters out of her home, and found the rifle had one round in the chamber and the safety off, according to the criminal complaint.

Peters was eventually arrested by the state police and committed to the Armstrong County Jail by District Judge James Owen. Bond was set at $7,500.

Peters faces a hearing on Tuesday in District Judge Samuel Goldstrohm's Rural Valley courtroom.
