Cops: Man threatened ex-girlfriend, got aggressive with Rostraver police

September 8, 2018

A 26-year-old man who allegedly threatened an ex-girlfriend at her Rostraver Township apartment and became aggressive with police at the scene was ordered held in the Westmoreland County Prison on multiple criminal charges.

Dyshon K. Stafford, whose last known permanent address was in Philadelphia, was arraigned before Norvelt District Judge Roger Eckels on charges of terroristic threats, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, prowling and loitering and harassment following the incident early Tuesday outside the woman’s apartment on Mathews Road.

He was ordered held in the county prison after failing to post $5,000 bail.

Township police Sgt. Ronald Naylor alleges that Stafford showed up at the female’s apartment about 3:40 a.m. and repeatedly rang the doorbell. When he was told to leave, Stafford told the victim he had a gun.

When Naylor arrived at the scene, he reported that Stafford became “aggressive” and refused multiple commands, and also threatened a family member of the victim who also arrived at the scene.

Eckels scheduled a preliminary hearing for Aug. 31.
