A Harrison man and an Arnold woman are charged with a robbery that resulted in a vehicle being shot up in Arnold last month.

Mary C. Williams, 20, of Kenneth Avenue, Arnold, and Jacob Raguel Timothy, 21, of Walnut Street, Harrison, are charged with robbing a man at his Camp Avenue home Jan. 10, then returning later and firing shots through the rear window of the man's Jeep.

Police allege Timothy was armed with a revolver and Williams brandished a large knife when they went to the house. Timothy allegedly pointed the revolver at a man and demanded that the victim give him money. Police say the pair made off with at least $400 and a video game system.

Court papers say they returned later, and Timothy is accused of firing the gunshots into the rear window of a Jeep parked at the residence.

Timothy was arrested in Arnold and arraigned Jan. 24. He is accused of robbery, recklessly endangering another person and criminal mischief. He remains in the Westmoreland County Prison in lieu of $100,000 bond.

Williams is charged with robbery and is in the county jail in lieu of $10,000 bond.

A preliminary hearing for both is scheduled for Feb. 22.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

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. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
