LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A Lancaster man will serve up to 12 years in prison for using online ads to lure women to private locations where he then assaulted and robbed them.
Daryl Dion Walker, Jr. pleaded guilty Monday to robbery, criminal conspiracy, and assault charges in exchange for a 3-to-12-year prison sentence.
Police said the charges stemmed from three separate January incidents at locations in Dauphin and Lancaster counties.
Few details have been given about the first incident in Susquehanna Township, but police said Walker sped away from an officer during a traffic stop on January 13.
On January 25, police said Walker robbed a woman at gunpoint outside a Susquehanna Township apartment. The victim told police she had made contact with Walker through an ad on a site called “Backpage.”
During the January 29 incident, police said Walker robbed a woman of her purse, jewelry, and struck her several times with a gun at an Econo Lodge hotel room in East Cocalico Township, Lancaster County. The victim in the case told police she also arranged the meet with Walker via the Backpage site.
