Local State Rep. Robbed At Gunpoint In Harrisburg
HARRISBURG (KDKA) — Two men are in custody after a local lawmaker, his chief of staff and his intern, a Slippery Rock University Student, were robbed at gunpoint.
It happened around 12:30 a.m. Monday near the State Capitol in Harrisburg.
“When they pointed the gun at my chief of staff’s head, told us to get down on the ground, we got down on the ground and they told us to clear our pockets,” State Rep. Jaret Gibbons, who represents Beaver, Butler, and Lawrence County said. “We gave them cell phones, wallets, etcetera.”
Neither Gibbons, his aide nor his intern, Charles Goodall, was seriously hurt.
It happened on Court Street as the trio was unloading belongings into an apartment. The gunmen took off in a car belonging to Gibbons’ aide, Kevin Bowser.
The vehicle was located a short time later. Police arrested the two men inside. Both are from Harrisburg and face numerous charges.
