Baldwin police seeking two men suspected in robbery
Two men charged in connection with a Knoedler Road robbery last month have turned themselves in, while a warrant remains for a third.
Baldwin Borough police issued a warrant for Daniel “DJ” Joe Jr., 23, of Streets Run Road, Baldwin Borough, on charges of robbery, burglary and criminal conspiracy, police said last week.
Joe is described as being 5-feet-11 and having brown eyes and brown hair, police said. Police are asking anyone who sees him to call 911.
Police said Dandre Andrews, 20, of Knoedler Road, was arrested on the same charges on Feb. 28. Mason Haney, 22, of Macassar Drive, turned himself in on Monday on charges of criminal trespass, robbery, burglary and conspiracy.
Police Chief Michael Scott said Joe is wanted in connection with a Feb. 17 robbery, after Joe had made arrangements to borrow video games from a Knoedler Drive resident.
When the resident opened the door, two others pushed their way inside the residence, along with Joe, telling the woman who resided there that it was a robbery, Scott said.
The woman attempted to lock a camera case with cash inside a bedroom, then call for help, but one of the men grabbed her in the hallway and restrained her, Scott said.
The men are accused to stealing a backpack valued at $65, seven video games, one movie and a camera case that contained $500 cash.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
