York City Police said Joseph "Sloth" Shai'Dann Mehaffie, 26, robbed the victim  Oct. 3.

Mehaffie pointed a gun at the man and forced him to withdraw $1,000, money which the man allegedly owed for drugs, according to court documents.

Police said Mehaffie also assaulted the man during the incident.
