A second man has been charged in an apparent property line dispute May 18 in Conewago Township.
Police earlier charged William B. Strouse Jr., 71, of the 1700 block of Mount Zion Road in Springettsbury Township, for pulling a handgun on 54-year-old Dennis Eckenrode.
Northern York County Regional Police have since filed a citation for a single count of summary harassment against Eckenrode, of the 600 block of Butter Road.
Police said Eckenrode approached Strouse about 4:20 p.m. after Strouse was seen walking through Eckenrode's property. Strouse told the homeowner that he was looking for property line markers, police said.
Eckenrode demanded that Strouse leave the property, at which point Strouse allegedly spit on him and pushed him, police said. Eckenrode allegedly pushed back and spit at Strouse, and Strouse then pulled a .25-caliber handgun from his left front pants pocket, police said.
Strouse "racked" the slide of the gun to load the weapon and pointed it at Eckenrode, police allege. After several moments Strouse put the gun away and walked back to a neighboring property, police said.
Responding officers arrested Strouse at another residence in the 600 block of Butter Road. Police found the handgun, which had seven rounds in the magazine but none in the chamber, in his pants pocket, police said. Strouse was taken to central booking, where he was arraigned on simple assault, reckless endangerment, criminal trespass and harassment charges.
