U.S. Marshals Task Force Arrests York Suspect on Charges of Aggravated Assault
York, PA - Today, U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane announced that the United States Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force arrested Robert Crowe – a 37-year old man in San Jose, CA.

On November 3rd, 2016, the York County District Attorny’s Office obtained an arrest warrant charging Crowe with aggravated assault, intimidation witness/victim, terroristic threats with intent to terrorize another and simple assault. It is alleged that Crowe beat his victim in April of 2016 for which the victim was treated at an area hospital.

Members of the Fugitive Task Force developed information that Crowe fled the area and was believed to be in the San Jose, CA area. An investigative lead was sent to Marshals based in San Jose for assistance with locating and arresting Crowe. On March 1, 2017, San Jose Marshals located and arrested Crowe without incident. Crowe was turned over to local authorities. He is awaiting court proceedings pending extradition back to York.

United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The task force place a high priority on fugitive cases in which the use or threat of violence occurs. Working with our law enforcement partners ensures violent offenders are brought to justice.”

The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with officers from the York County District Attorney’s Office, Pennsylvania State Police, Northern District of California and the U.S. Marshals Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force with its partners.
