Two Harrisburg men are accused of robbing and fighting residents of a mobile home in Fairview Township last year.

Police say Kevin Clark, 30, and Tywon Russaw, 34, threatened to shoot the residents, and the residents fought back, which caused a gun to fire multiple times.

The robbery allegedly occurred in June 2016, and charges were filed Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017.

Clark, of Sixth Street, is charged with robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and prohibited possession of a firearm.

Russaw, who has not yet been arraigned, faces the same charges except for the firearm charge.

Allegations: Police were sent to Meadowbrook Court Mobile Home Park for a reported assault at 12:30 a.m. June 23, 2016.

Residents told police that two men, later identified as Clark and Russaw, entered their residence, assaulted them and threatened to shoot them, according to police.

The two were demanding money and the victims eventually fought back, officials said.

Police say while they were fighting, multiple shots were fired from the gun. The two then fled the scene on foot, police said.

Charges were filed Wednesday, and Clark was arraigned on them the following day. He was remanded to York County Prison in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Russaw is in Clinton County Prison and is awaiting arraignment on the charges. His arraignment was scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday, Sept. 11, at District Judge Scott Gross' office.
