Schuylkill County Woman Threatens to Kill a Daughter and Mother with Kitchen Knife

A Schuylkill County woman is facing a terroristic threats charge after reportedly saying she’d kill a daughter and her mother in New Philadelphia.

According to information from State Police-Frackville, the incident happened Friday night, a little before 9 o’clock, on Valley St.

Police say Colette Rajkowski, 54, of New Philadelphia, threatened two women. As the situation escalated, Rajkowski pulled a kitchen knife and said she kill a woman – an unidentified 30-year-old from New Philadelphia – and her mother, a 52-year-old from Oneida.

Rajkowski was taken into custody and arraigned before on-call District Judge AJ Serina, who sent her to Schuylkill County Prison on $5,000 bail.

She was unable to post a percentage of that bail, police say, and is due back before District Judge David Plachko for a preliminary hearing.
