3rd Suspect Arrested In 2013 Fatal Home Invasion In Coraopolis

PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) – Federal authorities say they have arrested the third suspect being sought in a 2013 home invasion and fatal shooting in Coraopolis.

The U.S. Marshals Service said 26-year-old Rasheim Wallace was taken into custody Tuesday at a nail salon in Mokena, Illinois, where he had been working under an alias.

He reportedly told the arresting officers, “I’m the guy you’re looking for.”

Officials said the Wilkinsburg resident would be taken to Cook County jail pending extradition to Pennsylvania.

Allegheny County authorities said earlier that 21-year-old Tanika Paul of Pittsburgh was arrested in August during a traffic stop in Wilkinsburg. Twenty-two-year-old Bradley Kemp of Wilkinsburg was taken into custody in October 2014.

The three were wanted in a November 2013 robbery in Coraopolis during which authorities said intruders seeking drugs and money pulled 39-year-old Thomas Cassano from a bedroom, shot him and fled.

Cassano’s two young daughters witnessed the crime. One suffered injuries when she was thrown by one of the suspects for trying to help her father.

Once Wallace is brought back to the Pittsburgh area, he’ll be taken to the Allegheny County Jail.
