Men accused of forcing ATM withdrawals charged again
Two York City men accused of forcing a man to withdraw thousands of dollars are now accused of committing a similar robbery just days before.
York City Police say Khaliph Miller, 25, and Nehemiah Davis, 22, helped Marcus Johnson, 20, rob someone at gunpoint in early September.
Miller and Davis, both of the 600 block of East Princess Street, are charged with robbery, simple assault and theft, among other charges.
Allegations: Davis, Miller and Johnson were together when they lured someone to the 600 block of East Market Street about 11 a.m. Sept. 4, York City Police said.
When the person arrived, the three held him at gunpoint and threatened him, according to charging documents.
The three of them then struck the victim several times, causing injuries, police said.
Police say Johnson also hit the victim in the head with a pistol.
The trio then took the victim's cellphone, wallet and bank card, court documents state. Police say they demanded the PIN for his bank card.
Davis and Miller then withdrew money from the victim's bank account, police allege.
Johnson, of East Market Street, was the first of the three to be charged. Charges were filed for Johnson on Monday, Sept. 25, and he was arraigned on them that night.
Charges for Davis and Miller were filed Thursday, Oct. 5, and the two were arraigned on the charges that day.
When Johnson was charged, the two other suspects were not identified.
At the time of the new charges, Davis and Miller were in custody on different charges alleging the two forced a man at gunpoint to withdraw thousands of dollars from his bank account.
Withdrawals: The alleged Sept. 4 robbery occurred just two days before another robbery in which police say Davis and Miller forced a man to give them his bank card and PIN.
Police say Miller and Davis lured a man into the area of the 600 block of East Market Street about 5:20 p.m. Sept. 6.
They allegedly held him at gunpoint and made threats to him, then forced him to go to the M&T bank at 800 E. Market St., police said. They forced the man to withdraw $500 from his bank account, police said
The two also drove him to the Members 1st Federal Credit Union in Springettsbury Township and made him withdraw $4,000 from his bank account, court documents state.
From there, they took him to Sneaker Villa in York City, where police say he was forced to purchase $750 in clothing.
Davis then gave the victim's bank card and PIN to his girlfriend, Monica Shaleese Bethea, police said.
Bethea, 19, is accused of withdrawing $910.50 from the victim's account, according to court documents.
Bethea, Davis, Johnson and Miller are all listed as living at the same address.
Miller and Davis remain in York County Prison in lieu of $125,000 bail each.
