Area Man Stalks Own Wife with a Machete, Guns and a Valentine, Police Say

Brass knuckles, a loaded gun and duct tape were among the items found with a Valentine from a Perkiomenville husband to his wife, allegedly threatening 39 kinds of violence.

Roses are red. Violets are blue. A restraining order, might be good for you two.

A Perkiomenville man was arrested according to the Morning Call last week. His long list of charges stem from an event of "stalking" his wife, according to Emmaus Police. Apprently, he really didn't know what to get her for Valentine's Day.

Flint Andrew Staton, 30, of Perkiomenville, was reportedly following his wife to work to deliver his "Valentine." The problem? His Valentine card allegedly came complete with descriptions of violence.

According to the Inquisitr.com, the Valentine's Day card had 39 "pieces of paper depicting various forms of violence and killing." The card was entitled "A Promise for My Wife."

He will await trial in prison. His scheduled court date for a preliminary hearing? Ironically, Feb. 14 -- Valentine's Day.

This story should be removed from Patch until it can be appropriately rewritten without the Valentine's Day jokes.
