FREEMANSBURG, Pa. -

A second man has been accused of causing fear in a Northampton County neighborhood a week ago by brandishing a weapon, officials said.

Shane A. Davis ran across the street and began swinging a metal pipe in the air in the direction of a man and a woman after he and several other people got out of white Toyota van in the 400 block of Main Street in Freemansburg at about 6:40 p.m. last Friday, officials said.

Davis took off in the van after the woman told him she was calling the police, officials said.

Davis, 23, of 328 Polk St., Bethlehem, was arraigned early Thursday morning on charges of making terroristic threat, assault, disorderly conduct and harassment and released on $20,000 unsecured bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. July 12.

Lindsey P. Whitney, 27, of 1450 East 6th St., Bethlehem, is facing the same charges as Davis in connection with the incident.

Whitney is accused of raising his shirt several times as he got out of the white van to show people across the street that he had a dark-colored pellet gun that looked like a real firearm in his waistband, officials said.

Whitney also held his Airsoft pellet gun in the air and cocked the slide as he drove off in the white van, officials said.
