Easton PD Looking for Armed Robbery Suspect

Easton Police are looking for a man who allegedly robbed another man at gunpoint in the 500 block of Pine Street at about 9 p.m. on Friday night.

Police say the victim, a 28-year-old male from the Nazareth area, described the robber as being about six feet tall with a thin build. The perpetrator was wearing black pants and a black hooded sweatshirt, is 20 to 30 years old and is possibly Hispanic, police added.

After the robbery, the thief reportedly fled west on Pine Street.

The victim, who reportedly came to Easton collect money owed to him, was robbed of an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police say they believe the robbery was an isolated incident and not a random act. They added that they do not believe the public is in danger, but are still investigating the incident. They are also looking into whether the robbery was related to other illegal activity, they added.

Police ask that anyone with information about this crime please contact Detective Snyder of the Easton Police Department at 610-250-6637.
