ROCHESTER, Pa. – Police said a Pennsylvania man bound his neighbor with duct tape, doused him with gasoline and threatened to set him on fire unless the neighbor confessed to burglarizing his house.
John Black of New Sewickley Township was charged with burglary, aggravated assault, unlawful restraint and related crimes.
Police said that on Thursday, Black accused Henry Schmitt Jr. of burglarizing his home earlier this month before eventually letting him go.
Police said they have no evidence Schmitt burglarized Black. Schmitt lives in a camper on Black's property.
A listed number for Black couldn't be located and it was unknown if he has an attorney.
