FRANKLIN COUNTY — Four suspected members of the Pagans Outlaw Motorcycle Gang were arrested Sunday after they allegedly threatened to injure a Franklin County man at a convenience store — then later showed up at the man’s house while police were talking to him about the incident, according to State Police.

The unidentified victim told police the suspects threatened him with “bodily harm” during a confrontation at a Rutter’s store on the 4400 block of Lincoln Way West in St. Thomas Township at about 3:28 p.m., according to a criminal complaint affidavit filed by State Police.
