(CNN) -- A 22-year-old man is accused of knocking on the door of the police chief of a northwestern Pennsylvania town and exposing himself, authorities said Wednesday.

Corry Police Chief Rich Shopene said Brody Eugene Hall knocked on his door shortly after 6 a.m. Sunday and exposed his genitals when Shopene opened the door.

"I saw you had Halloween decorations up," said Shopene, quoting Hall. "I'm here to scare your children."

Shopene told CNN that Hall also tried to enter his house, prompting Shopene to push the man to the ground and arrest him.

"I'm going to stab you and your family," Hall then allegedly yelled, according to the police chief.

Hall is charged with public drunkenness, harassment and other related counts, authorities said.

Earlier Sunday, Hall had also allegedly knocked on an elderly neighbor's door, Shopene said, though it is not clear what occurred there.

CNN cannot independently confirm Shopene's account and Hall's attorney, John Bonanti, was not immediately available for comment.

Hall was released from Erie County Jail on Tuesday and is expected to make his first court appearance on November 15, according to spokesman Steve Delinski.
