A Philadelphia man is behind bars after police said he used a large dog to threaten an employee of the 7-Eleven in Hatboro.
Upon responding to a disturbance at the 1 N. York Road convenience store on Jan. 26 at 10:43 p.m., police said Cavon A. Broaddus, 27, of Philadelphia, was arrested and charged with simple assault, possession of a controlled substance, false identification to law enforcement, false reports to law enforcement, and harassment.
Police said that Broaddus became upset with a 7-Eleven employee over a matter and left. He then returned to the store with a large dog and threatened the employee, according to police.
When officers arrived, police said Broaddus provided a false name and an inconsistent version of events. When he was arrested he was found to be in possession of heroin.
Broaddus was arraigned before District Justice Juanita Price of Abington and was incarcerated at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility when he failed to post the $10,000 cash bail.
