Philipsburg man charged with assault after threatening woman with knife

CLEARFIELD – A Philipsburg man who allegedly put a butcher’s knife to a woman’s throat will be tried on multiple charges in Clearfield County Court.

29-year-old Brock Karg waived his right to a preliminary hearing this week.

State Police have accused Karg of aggravated and simple assault after they responded to a Chester Hill residence earlier this month where Karg and the victim had been arguing over money for a child’s birthday presents.

The victim claims that as the argument escalated, Karg put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her.

Authorities are considering Karg as a severe threat, so he is being held in the Clearfield County Jail without bail.
