EDGEWOOD (KDKA) –A man wanted for robbery and murder was arrested in Edgewood Monday night.

According to police, he was taken into custody shortly after 10 p.m. near the corner of Chestnut and Gordon Streets in Edgewood.

Police arrested 33-year-old David Anthony Fry Monday night after he allegedly held up the Edgewood Express.

“We flooded the entire area with the other agencies associated with this investigation and once we got notification that he was up in the Gordon Lloyd area, we surrounded that area and the K-9s were able to track him down and during the process of attempting to arrest him, he resisted arrest and one of the canines had to bite him,” Edgewood Police Chief Robert Payne said.

Police said he’s the same man who robbed the Sheetz in Wilkins Township on Sunday.

At the time of the robberies, the suspect was driving a white Chevy Cruze, which belonged to a murder victim in Erie.

“We know that he had a vehicle. The vehicle was a vehicle that was related to that homicide. It has been recovered over in the borough of Homestead,” Chief Payne said.

The man’s body was found in an apartment building Sunday.

Fry was taken to UPMC Mercy Hospital to be treated for dog bite wounds he suffered during the arrest.

He is now in the Allegheny County Jail facing a list of charges including, attempted robbery and homicide.
