    An eastern Pennsylvania man may face up to 37 years in prison for tearing open a neighbor's door with a chain saw.

    Police say 34-year-old Robert Kane began sawing through the front door of Jamie Zaleski's apartment in Scranton while Zaleski and several friends ran out the back.

    Kane was angry because a friend of Zaleski's parked in front of his house across the street. Police say when Zaleski asked who was at the door, Kane said it was his worst nightmare, told him, "Open the door or I'll cut it down," and started sawing.

    A jury convicted Kane on Tuesday of charges including attempted burglary, attempted criminal trespass and terroristic threats. He was held in lieu of $20,000 bail. A sentencing date wasn't immediately set.
