The weapons in a recent duel at an Upper Milford Township home were neither swords nor pistols.
Instead, state police at Fogelsville reported that a man and woman were cited for threatening each other with a cell phone and spackling knife.
It was not immediately clear, according to police-released information, what started a dispute in the 4000 block of Miller Avenue about 8:40 p.m. Saturday. But police reported that Vincent David Longo, 51, made threatening gestures with a spackling knife. Pattie Ann Bowman, 47, responded by striking Longo in the face with a cell phone, police said.
Both were cited for harassment, police said. Charges were filed with Magisterial District Judge Donna Butler of Emmaus.
