A Palmerton man is in custody after threatening to slit his girlfriend’s throat if she didn’t give him money.

Wilbur Fountain Jr., 42, faces charges of endangering the welfare of children, terroristic threats, simple assault and harassment.

Fountain was scheduled to have a preliminary hearing today before District Judge William Kissner of Palmerton.

According to the affidavit of probable cause filed by patrolman Brian Stern of the Palmerton Borough Police Department:

On Sept. 28, Stern was dispatched to 771 Edgemont Ave. for a domestic disturbance.

The woman told Stern that her boyfriend, Fountain, had assaulted her and her juvenile son.

The woman said that Fountain threatened to slit her throat if she didn’t give him money, and shoved her twice.

The juvenile told Stern that Fountain pushed and punched him several times.

Stern examined the boy and saw he had red marks on his left cheek, scratches on the back of his neck, and a cut on his left ear.

Fountain is incarcerated in the Carbon County Correctional Facility in lieu of $2,500 straight bail.

Thank you Deviant Republicans for opposing abortion and advocating the sexual abuse and beating of women! We need more of rejects like this in our communities! America is great again!
Your right. Trump instructed him to threaten to slit his girlfriends throat. It’s all the republicans fault. I’m pretty sure no republicans support any of the things you just stated. You sound like a complete idiot!! God save us with a red wave in November.
Wow that has to be one of the most ignorant comments I have seen in awhile. So I guess we should do a Retroactive Abortion on this guy. I guess Trump made him do it.
Diggingout@1 is one of those extreme Democratic nuts we see on TV , you know the ones that would blame Republicans for the color of the sky .....
Ya I suppose Trump caused this hurricane also. What idiots the Democrats are, they should all move to California before the big quake comes and it sinks into the ocean.
Take your meds! Really! You snowflakes are really out there now. Its a giant leap to blame ANY politician for this mutts behavior. Ya just gotta love people like you that can take any article and hijack it for their own political agenda. GO GET HELP!
Yes!!! Send us all to the Stalag in California! You Nazi Republican Psycho! Have us all killed , you'd like that wouldn't you? Thanks for proving my point that you're all Deviant! Heil Trump!! The Trump Train runs straight to he Death Camp!
1st Amendment assault by the Deviant Republicans. Having my Posts removed. Hitler started this way.
I have no care as to democrat or republican but this type behavior is not wanted in any neighborhood - I am still dealing with pedophile Schaeffer family & the insane son Christopher Schaeffer - How does this lunatic get to possess a firearm? every hunting season he is here!!!

Way to go Trooper Creeden Towanda barracks - if the stepchild was killed by this lunatic it would been your fault letting this deranged maniac continue to attack others..
I lovw when the left starts crying as soon as they hear something they don't like. I like watching them squirm. Btw-i can start a small army w all the guns and ammo i have--lol. Go squirm!
