A Nesquehoning man was arrested late last month following a strange series of events one night in Schuylkill County.

A Nesquehoning man was arrested late last month following a strange series of events one night in Schuylkill County.

According to State Police-Frackville, the incident happened a little after 10 p.m. on Aug. 29. That’s when a woman was traveling along Lake Drive in Rush Township, on her way home.

On her drive home, the woman encountered a man along the road who jumped in front of her vehicle. The woman stopped her vehicle and got out to give the man some help.

That’s when the man – identified as Louis Cichon, 56 – began screaming and punching the hood of the woman’s vehicle.

The woman feared for her safety at that point and attempted to get back into her vehicle. Cichon then ran into the front quarter panel of her vehicle, damaging it. After that, he fled into a wooded area and wasn’t seen until later that night.

During the overnight hours, police say, apparently the same man appeared along Lake Drive, in about the same location. Another caller told police there was a suspicious person on Lake Drive.

Police arrived and found Cichon standing in the middle of Lake Drive. They say he appeared to be high on some type of drug. A charge of reckless endangerment is pending against Cichon.
