BROCKWAY MAN CHARGED WITH DUBOIS STABBING INCIDENT

The affidavit further provides that officers traveled to the East Side Sports Bar and learned that a man named “Howie” got into an argument with the victim and then displayed a knife.  After being asked to leave the bar, “Howie” stabbed the victim and fled the scene. 

DuBois City Police Officers with the assistance of the Brockway Police Department located Getz at a residence within Brockway Borough.  Getz was taken into custody without further incident.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 9, 2010. 

Shaw stated that “he was pleased with the rapid response of the DuBois City Police Department to locate Getz”.  This type of behavior is troubling and “the DuBois City Police acted swiftly to identify and apprehend Getz”.
