Police in York County have arrested a second man for a jewelry store heist last summer where both the store owner and a robber were shot.

Timothy N. Forbes Jr., of Allentown, was taken into custody by Allentown police and the FBI, according to York Area Regional police.

Forbes has been charged with attempted homicide,
conspiracy, robbery, theft and receiving stolen property for the July 12 incident at White Jewelers, at 204 St. Charles Way in York Township.

A co-defendant, Jamal Smallwood, was arrested in July after he went to a Bronx, New York hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to the stomach. He remains in custody.

Police have said Smallwood was shot as he walked out of a back room of the store during
the robbery.

The store owner, John White, was wounded by gunshots to his left arm, chest, and
stomach.

Police said the investigation is ongoing and more arrests are possible in the future.
