Police: Man robbed by multiple gunmen on York street

A Sharon man told police he was robbed on a residential street by multiple gunmen early on the morning of Oct. 26, according to a York police report.

York police received a 911 call at 3 a.m. saying five figures wearing masks had a man on the ground on Marvin Circle, robbing him at gunpoint.

By the time police arrived on the scene, the gunmen had fled. The 31-year-old victim told police he and another man were walking toward his truck when he turned and saw two men in all-black clothing and masks approaching him, one bearing a pistol and the other a rifle or shotgun.

The robbers told him to “give it up.” His friend, the victim claimed, then “ran off.”

The gunmen then took $500 in cash, a cellphone, a set of truck keys and his black toboggan hat, then ran from the area on foot.

When questioned by police, the man said he couldn’t identify the men and that he only saw two. A K-9 unit was called to the scene to try to track the gunmen.

Later, the victim told police he was “pretty sure” he knew who robbed him, but declined to give a name, saying he “was going to take care of it.”
