RAPHO — A dispute aboard a bus traveling on the Pennsylvania Turnpike ended with three people stabbed and a man facing attempted homicide charges.

The stabbings occurred around 11 p.m. Monday near the Lancaster Lebanon interchange in the eastbound lanes of the turnpike in Rapho. But details about what sparked the dispute were not disclosed.

State police say 31-year-old Philip Giletto, who has no known address, stabbed a 28-year-old Brooklyn, New York man in the back, shoulder and chest. Giletto then allegedly stabbed a 45-year-old Las Vegas man in the head, neck, and back, while a 36-year-old Quincy, Massachusetts woman was stabbed in the back.

The men were seriously injured and remain hospitalized. The woman was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

It’s not known if Giletto has retained an attorney.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
