Second Suspect Arrested for South Side Robberies

A 16-year-old male was arrested just after noon today in connection to two of three robberies that occurred recently in the South Side neighborhood of the city, the Easton Police Department has announced.

The juvenile arrested, whose name is not being released due to his age, is suspected of having been involved in a robbery that occurred in the 400 block of Davis Street this past Sunday just after midnight on September 29, and also in an attempted home invasion that occurred in the 600 block of Charles Street at about 1:46 a.m. the same day, police say.

Both incidents reportedly involved a shotgun being displayed by the perpetrators, and police reported they recovered a plastic replica weapon in the area after the robberies.

A 16-year-old runaway, Al-fuquan Craft who also used the street name "Fu-Fu", was arrested Tuesday and charged Wednesday with robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, and theft in connection with an incident that occurred on Friday, Sept. 27 around 11:30 p.m., where two males reportedly approached a 42-year-old Easton resident with a knife and stole her cell phone, police said.

Police now indicate he was additionally involved in the Davis Street robbery and will face charges in connection with that incident as well.

Both 16-year-old suspects are in the custody of Northampton County Juvenile Detention, police said.

It is unclear if police are seeking a possible third suspect in connection to the three crime incidents.
