By Caroline Sweeney

PHOENIXVILLE — Police filed charges against a man for three incidents in two days, according to court documents.
Joshua Todd Chalcraft, 18, of Phoenixville, was charged with several felonies including intimidating a witness or victim, aggravated assault, simple assault, propulsion of missiles onto roadways, and other related charges according to court documents.
On May 9 around 1:25 a.m., officers stopped Chalcraft’s car in the area of Main Street and Third Avenue in the borough after he allegedly yelled obscenities at a victim and threw a GPS at the car the victim was driving, police said.
According to police, Chalcraft was taken to Schuylkill Township, processed, and released.
A little more than an hour later, while the victim and two witnesses were working with borough police, Chalcraft allegedly showed up at the station and threatened to kill the men, police said.
As a term of his release from Schuylkill Township, Chalcraft was forbidden from having contact with the victim, police said.
“Chalcraft was demanding them to tell him where they were so he could come kill them,” the affidavit of probable cause said.
Chalcraft also allegedly made threatening phone calls to the victims, police said.
On May 10 at 12:21 a.m., officers were called to the 200 block of Morgan Street where Chalcraft had allegedly thrown a knife at one of the victims; embedding the weapon in the victim’s leg, police said.
The victim removed the knife from his leg and tossed it onto the porch, police said. Chalcraft picked up the knife and threw it once more - this time through a window.
A witness called police and Chalcraft ran before officers arrived.
Chalcraft was unable to post his combined $75,000 bail and is confined to the Chester County Prison until his next hearing which is scheduled for May 21.
