MILLERSVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) – Millersville police have announced an arrest in a robbery and assault that occurred earlier this month.
On Aug. 5, a victim went to the Millersville Borough Police Department to report he had been robbed while attending a party at an apartment complex that was off the campus of Millersville University.
The victim told police he was asked for a ride, and was then struck with a handgun when he refused. He also reported he was kicked in the face and had his wallet, watch, necklace and vehicle keys stolen.
The suspect, later identified as 19-year-old Treyon Andre Thomas, fled, according to police.
On Wednesday, Millersville police were notified by the New York City Police Department that Thomas was in police custody in New York City.
