2 more charged in robbery
Greensburg police have filed charges against two more city residents in connection with the beating and robbery of a man Wednesday morning while he was sleeping in a friend's apartment.
Capt. George Seranko said yesterday Robert Strong, 45, of 900 E. Pittsburgh St., was arraigned in Night Court by District Justice Cheryl J. Peck-Yakopec late Wednesday on charges of robbery, criminal conspiracy, theft and receiving stolen property. He was released on $1,000 bail.
Ronaele J. Myers, 39, of 608 Cleveland St., faces identical charges and was arraigned before District Justice James Albert, of Greensburg, Thursday afternoon. She was released on $10,000 unsecured bail.
Strong and Myers were charged with robbing Michael Delligatti, who has no permanent address, of $71 while he was sleeping at the apartment of Ronald E. Wright, 34, of apartment 2A, 735 Eastmont St., Greensburg.
Delligatti identified Wright as one of his assailants, so police arrested him on a felony count of robbery, theft, simple assault and four counts of criminal conspiracy. He was arraigned before Albert and placed in Westmoreland County Prison in lieu of $10,000 bail. (
Wright allegedly punched Delligatti in the face several times when he awoke. Myers and Strong did not assault the victim, Seranko said. Delligatti was treated at Westmoreland Regional Hospital in Greensburg for facial lacerations, police said.
Wright, Myers and Strong all face a preliminary hearing Thursday before Albert.
