Croydon Man Charged Again for Terrorizing Family, This Time with Gun Fire



A Bristol Township man who has been allegedly terrorizing a  Croydon family was arrested and charged for a third time since January of 2022.

Tyler Perkins, 21, of Croydon was taken into custody Friday afternoon by Bristol Twp Police, charged with a felony count of carrying a gun without a license, a felony count of discharging a weapon into a home, two counts of terroristic threats, two counts of reckless endangerment and two counts of assault.

This is Perkins third arrest since January for terrorizing and threatening these victims. 

This arrest, Police say, is due in part to a “continuing course of conduct to harass the victims, which, has included, “multiple threatening texts, phone calls” and “criminal conduct.”

According to the probable cause, on October 26, Perkins is alleged to have gotten into a fist fight with a juvenile victim causing an unspecified injury.

The young man, according to police, was taken by a family member to Police Headquarters to file a report, in which charges were filed for the altercation. 

While filing the report, Perkins drove by the victims house and pointed a handgun at a second family member on the 2000 block of Colonial Drive, according to Police. A short time later, Perkins, police say, fired at least two gunshots in the direction of the victims as they scattered for safety.

Police say the gun shots struck a vehicle in the victim’s driveway and the door of a home, where a six-month old child resides on the 2000 block of Colonial Drive.

The incident was captured on video, which Lower Bucks Source has obtained, and two shell casings were also recovered at the scene by police.

One victim provided  police with a written statement identifying Perkins as the person who fired gun shots while driving by the Croydon home.

Perkins, at the time of the incident was under the age of 21, and not legally allowed to own a gun in the commonwealth, nor does he have a permit to carry a firearm, police said in court papers.

The victims who are terrified of Perkins and what he might do, told police the juvenile involved with the original case, is terrified to testify against him in an upcoming court case scheduled for trial on April 14 the Court of Common Pleas in Doylestown.

In that case, he is charged with assault and harassment. 

Perkins was arraigned by District Judge Frank W. Peranteau Sr.who set his bail at 10 percent of $50, 000.00

He is tentatively scheduled for a preliminary hearing on March 30 at Bristol Borough District Court

For the case filed and reported on by this publication on January 5th, Perkins is scheduled to appear for a hearing in ARD Court on April 26.

He remains in Bucks County Correctional Facility unable to post bond, according to online court records.

These judges and police have to do better. He should have way more charges n a way higher bail!!! Little cornball thug!!!

Randall Ave Bridge Restoration Project to Begin Next Week



The long awaited and much anticipated work to the Randall Avenue Bridge in Bristol Township will begin in earnest next week, township manager Randee J. Mazur said Thursday.

We have an executed agreement with Haines and Kibblehouse based in Chalfont H & K) in the amount of  $1,085,260.00. The project was originally planned to start June 21st and was pushed back a week by Amtrak to now begin Friday, June 28th,” she said.

Mobilization for the work began earlier today, with  setting up the construction laydown areas. They plan to use a portion of Pitt Avenue that is closed and will set up temporary chain link fence with a lock to secure all materials and equipment, officials said.

The Project Schedule is as follows:

6/28/24 to 7/1/24 – 55 Hour Outage on Track 3 with nighttime outage on Track 2

7/12/24 to 7/15/24 – 55 Hour Outage on Track 2 with nighttime outage on Track 3

7/26/24 to 7/29/24 – 55 Hour Outage on Track 1 with nighttime outage on Track 2

The bridge work, with no delays to the schedule, should be completed by the end of July, Mazur said.

“Gilmore and Associates is finalizing the abutment project bid and details, should be completed early July and then we will solicit bids for this work.”

If the abutments are ready for work, then with contract awarded, this work could start as early as July or August and is estimated to take three months. The abutments are what is required for the 3.5-ton limit and there is discussion with the work being done that it may be able to be increased once completed. The township manager said, our police department was advised we will need truck enforcement for the bridge to enforce whatever weight limit there is while we continue to work on design and funding for a full bridge replacement.

The 169-foot span bridge in the Edgely section of the township has been closed since February of 2023 after chunks of the bridge fell onto the ground and onto the Amtrak and SEPTA rail lines below. For the 16 months township officials have worked feverishly reviewing solutions, applying for grants, speaking, and meeting with  civil construction companies and leveraging county, state, and federal officials seeking help and support.

A community meeting held by the township in January involving officials from state, federal, and Amtrak offices seems to have put the project in motion. For almost a year there was little to no movement on what exactly should be done, due in part to Amtrak’s specific guidelines and requirements, one official, who asked not be identified said.

The project has gone back to using hi rail equipment for some of the work. H&K has their hi rail inspection scheduled for June 26th. H&K is planning to mobilize today and start setting up the construction laydown areas today and tomorrow (6/20 & 6/21). They plan to use a portion of Pitt Avenue that is closed and will set up a temporary chain link fence with a lock to secure all materials/equipment, Mazur said.
