SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Two 19-year-olds were arrested after police said they forced their way into a Shippensburg Township apartment and demanded money and drugs.
Michael McDaniel and Chance Neilley, both of Bethlehem, entered the apartment through an open first-floor window early Wednesday and threatened six people with a knife and a pellet gun that resembled a semiautomatic handgun, state police in Carlisle said.
The two fled when police officers arrived at the off-campus apartment in the first block of Richard Avenue but were taken into custody a short time later, police said.
Both are charged with robbery, burglary and related counts. They were sent to Cumberland County Prison on $139,000 bail.
