EAST EARL, PA – The East Earl Township Police Department has charged Kevin A. Edwards of New Holland with Intimidation of Victims or Witnesses.

Edwards is currently being held in Lancaster County Prison after he was unable to post bail on a previous arrest for Simple Assault, Intimidation of Witnesses or Victims, Endangering the Welfare of Children, and Harassment. It is alleged that Edwards, on August 26, 2021, assaulted the victim. After the assault, Edwards allegedly intimidated the victim into misleading investigating officers.

Police report the new charges are as a result of Edwards, on September 21, 2021, telephoning a victim or witness from the previous arrest “begging” them to “drop the charges.”

Information is subject to change at any time. All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
