Police: Pennsylvania Man Attacked With Bat, Crucifix During Robbery

KLEINFELTERSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A central Pennsylvania couple is behind bars after police say the husband attacked a man with a baseball bat and a crucifix during a robbery.

State police say 29-year-old Andrew Tirado stabbed the homeowner in the face with a metal crucifix after his wife distracted the man.

Investigators say Alisha Tirado went to the back of the Lebanon County house on Monday to talk to the victim while Andrew Tirado broke in the front. Police say Andrew Tirado hit the man with the bat then pulled the 10-inch crucifix off the door in the ensuing struggle and stabbed the man.

The Tirados were arrested Wednesday and are being held on $25,000 bail.

Police say the victim suffered a facial fracture and a puncture wound below his lip.
