Eighth Squad detectives report the arrest of a Levittown man for an incident that occurred on Sunday, December 20, 2020 at 1:50 pm in Levittown.
According to detectives, Christopher Price, 74, of 33 The Plains Road, agreed to meet with a female victim, 31 and her male friend, 50, at Shepard Lane and Market Lane. The female is an acquaintance of Price and had prior meetings with him for drug dealings. While at the location in her friend’s car they observed Price exit his vehicle with a shotgun, approach them and threaten them while pointing the shotgun at them.
