Police arrest Bangor man for allegedly violating PFA

He got into victim's face, threatening to kill her

NAZARETH, Pa. - A Slate Belt man is facing charges after authorities allege he went face-to-face with the woman who filed a protection order against him and threatened to kill her.

Nazareth police filed terroristic threats, disorderly conduct and harassment charges against Tyler Kulp, of South First Street in Bangor. Police filed the charges Monday, and an arrest warrant was issued.

Police arrested Kulp Tuesday, and District Judge Nancy Matos-Gonzalez arraigned him about 9:30 p.m. that night.

Authorities were dispatched to a Belvidere Street apartment in Nazareth about 12:45 a.m. Sunday to investigate a reported violation of a protection from abuse order. The victim told police that Kulp approached her on the sidewalk hurling profanities at her, according to court records.

The 32-year-old allegedly said he wanted the woman dead and that he’d do anything he could to kill her, according to records. That’s when he stood face-to-face with the woman, raised a fist and said he was going to hit her.

Police said the victim managed to get away by running into the apartment building and locking the front door behind her.

The judge set bail at $25,000 with a 10 percent cash option, if approved by Northampton County pre-trial services. If he posts bail, Kulp is again forbidden from having any contact with the victim. His next court date is a preliminary hearing scheduled for May 16.
