Police seek 2 suspects after Unity armed robbery

Paul Peirce

State police are seeking two men accused of being involved in an armed robbery at a mobile home in Unity.

Troopers obtained arrest warrants for John G. Struble IV, 20, of Youngstown, and Andrew Tyrell Washington, 21, of Greensburg, charging the pair with burglary, robbery, making terroristic threats, theft by unlawful taking, simple assault and criminal mischief in connection with the June 30 incident on the 100 block of Daily Avenue.

Trooper David Wineland alleges in court documents that the men forced their way into the residence by kicking the door and then used a handgun to threaten the three people who were sleeping inside, demanding cash. More than $100 in damage was caused to the door during the break-in, according to court documents.

No one was injured. It is unclear from court filings what the men are accused of taking.

According to police, the victims reported both men had their faces covered during the robbery. But authorities said they were able to identify the pair through a confidential informant and information obtained from the three victims.

Struble is described by police as approximately 5 feet, 11 inches and 150 pounds with brown hair. He has a “IV” tattoo on his left middle finger, police said. Washington is described as being over 6 feet tall and skinny with dreadlocks.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Struble or Washington is asked to call state police at 724-832-3288.
