Police Station 40th and Chestnut

The Division of Public Safety has made an arrest in connection to a robbery at 4200 Pine Street Sunday night. 

A 19-year-old unaffiliated man was arraigned and charged on Monday with robbery, conspiracy and related charges, DPS said. 

A UPennAlert was sent around 11:15 p.m. Sunday evening describing a "Robbery no weapon at 4200 Pine St." The scene was without police cars by 11:23 p.m., and an all-clear was sent out around 11:30 p.m.

Along with another suspect, the 19-year-old robbed a man who was walking east on Pine Street after having ordered a pizza. They stole his wallet, phone and the pizza. Penn Police later stopped the two suspects and placed in custody. The one was charged. 

According to the Division of Public Safety's website, the two suspects were black males in their early 20s who fled west on foot.

Marko, a 32-year-old man who lives on the 42nd and Pine block, said this was not the first incident the area has seen recently.

"Pretty much the same thing happened to me a week ago," said Marko, who asked for his last name to not be used. "It's pretty strange, because here, nothing happens. Everything is calm."
