A Clairton man is wanted on charges of aggravated assault and other offenses in connection with a burglary in the city.

Bobby Stanford Johnson, 44, is wanted for aggravated assault, criminal trespass, burglary, attempted burglary, conspiracy, recklessly endangering another person, theft by unlawful taking and terroristic threats, according to court documents.

Officers were dispatched on Monday shortly after 9 p.m. to the 200 block of Spruce Street for a burglary in progress involving a man with a gun.

Victims reported they found their home's door open, and located near the residence was a blue van with a black woman inside, according to court documents.

A man, later identified as Johnson, was confronted by the victims, who told him they would call the police. Johnson allegedly lifted his shirt and showed a gun in his waistband, and told the victims, “Do not call them.”

Court documents indicate another man was involved, but he left the scene. He later was identified as Jordan Spencer, 19, of Clairton and is charged with criminal trespass, burglary, conspiracy and theft by unlawful taking.

Officers were able to identify the driver of the van, Dehlia Brown, 35, of Clairton, who told police she did not know Johnson was not allowed in the house, and that he was her ex-boyfriend.

Brown is charged with conspiracy, unsworn falsification to authorities, theft by unlawful taking and obstructing administration of law.

Johnson is described as a black man standing 6 feet tall, weighing 230 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information regarding Johnson's whereabouts should contact police at 412-233-6213.
