Millersville Borough Police Department has made an arrest following a week and a half long investigation into a strong armed robbery of a 21 year old male. On 08/05/17 the victim came to the Millersville Borough police station to report that he had been robbed while attending a party in a Millersville University off-campus apartment complex. The victim reported that a male that he did not know, approached him in the living room of the apartment at approximately 2:40am and asked for a ride. When the victim refused to give the suspect a ride, the suspect became irate, pulled a handgun from his waistband and struck him in the back of the head with the handgun. The suspect then demanded that the victim give him his stuff and kicked the victim in the face. The suspect took the victim’s wallet, watch, gold necklace and vehicle keys and fled out the front door of the apartment. There were approximately 8-10 eyewitnesses in the living room at the time the robbery took place.
Police, through the course of following up with the victim and witnesses and a known nickname, “Trizzy”, of the suspect were able to positively identify the suspect as Treyon Andre Thomas(19yoa) of Lancaster PA. An arrest warrant was obtained for Thomas on 08/10/17 and Millersville Borough Police worked with Lancaster City Police and Manheim Township Police in attempts to locate Thomas. On 08/16/17 Millersville Borough Police were notified by NYPD that they had Thomas in custody in New York City. NYPD advised that at the time of his arrest he was found to be in possession of a firearm and a controlled substance so he faces additional charges in New York. Thomas is facing charges of Robbery, Aggravated Assault and theft for the incident in Millersville. Investigators are also looking into complaints of indecent contact with females that were in attendance of the party. Thomas additionally has a bench warrant through the Lancaster County Sherriff’s Office for a parole violation stemming from 2016 charges in Manheim Township of Simple Assault and Terroristic Threats involving a gun.
Police have not yet been able to identify all of the witnesses that were present at the party and are asking that they come forward to provide additional information that would be helpful.
