A Philadelphia man has been arrested for an armed robbery inside a Cumberland County home last month.

Justin Matthews, 31, is believed to be one of two men who robbed residents of a Geneva Greens apartment on November 5, according to Upper Allen Township police.

Police said the residents had been out for the evening and returned home to find the intruders, who held them at gunpoint for approximately 30-60 minutes.

During that time, they were forced to call other family members who were also held at gunpoint until the suspects finished their robbery, police said.

A laptop computer, jewelry and cash was taken from the apartment.

Matthews was in possession of some of the stolen items when he was arrested Thursday in Philadelphia, police said.

He faces charges of robbery, criminal conspiracy, theft by unlawful taking, terroristic threats and simple assault.
