Man Holds Three People Hostage Inside Home

Pennsylvania State Police arrested a Bradford County man after he held people hostage in his home. Police say 53 year old Eugene Moore locked three people in a bedroom threatening to kill them and himself.

The incident happened at 157 Augusta Road in Pike Township. Police got the victims out of the home through a bedroom window while Moore was in the kitchen. He came outside shortly after with a hand gun. He refused several police commands to surrender. He eventually complied.

The victims were a 37 year old male, a 58 year old female and a 20 year old female. Police say Moore blamed them for his marriage problems. He faces several charges including terroristic threats and false imprisonment.

He remains in the Bradford County correctional facility on $150,000 bail.
