Police: Woman breaks into ex-boyfriend’s home, chases and threatens him with knife

After breaking into her ex-boyfriend’s Old Lycoming Township home and trying to stab the man, Amy Melissa Wilson attempted to run him over as he he was running down his driveway, township Patrolman Matthew McCormick alleged in court papers.

Wilson, 31, of 9209 Rose Valley Road, Trout Run, is alleged to have forced her way into Richard Wheeler’s home at 450 Colvin Road by “throwing a rock through a glass door, reaching through the broken glass and unlocking the door” about 12:45 p.m. Saturday, McCormick said in an affidavit.

“I told you I was going to get ya,” Wilson, wearing a pair of latex gloves, told Wheeler as she made “slashing motions” toward Wheeler, who grabbed a telephone and dialed 911, McCormick said.

Wheeler managed to wrestle the knife-wielding intruder to the floor and disarm her, McCormick said.

Wheeler fled the house, but as he was going down the driveway, Wilson jumped in vehicle, put it in reverse and attempted to run him over, McCormick alleged.

Wheeler ran back to his house, and Wilson attempted to force her way into the property, but Wheeler prevented her from getting in, McCormick said.

Wilson, taken into custody at the scene, was charged with aggravated and simple assault, burglary, felony trespassing, terroristic threats, possession of an instrument of crime and recklessly endangering. Following her arraignment before District Judge James Carn, she was committed to the Lycoming County prison in lieu of $150,000 bail.
