MOUNT GRETNA, Pa. (WHTM) – Police are looking for a 21-year-old woman who was removed at gunpoint from a Lebanon County hospital.

Alicia Buzzard, a patient at Philhaven in West Cornwall Township, was removed from the hospital around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday by 18-year-old Elliott N. Ravert, Cornwall police Chief Bruce Harris said.

Ravert, of Narvon, demanded to see Buzzard and then pulled a handgun and threatened to shoot two nurses if they didn’t open a locked unit where she was housed, Harris said.

After the nurses complied, Ravert found Buzzard, took a two-way radio from one nurse, and both fled in a green 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche pickup truck, police said.

Investigators said the truck had a Pennsylvania license plate of ZGY-3594, but they have reason to believe Ravert may have changed it.

Investigators said Buzzard and Ravert were in a relationship at some point, but the status of that relationship is unknown at this time.

“We don’t know at this point of Alicia Buzzard is in danger or was a willing participant in what occurred,” Harris said.

No hospital staff was injured.

Police have an arrest warrant for Ravert. He is charged with robbery, aggravated assault, and terroristic threats.

“If they see him, what they should do is call the police department wherever they’re located and let them handle it,” Harris said. “We don’t know what his mindset is at this point, but obviously, since there’s a handgun involved, were concerned about it”

Anyone having information on the whereabouts of Ravert and Buzzard should call Cornwall police at (717) 274-2071.
