Aggravated Assault Suspect Arrested by U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in York, PA
York, PA - Today, U.S. Marshal Martin Pane announced the arrest of Brian J. Freeman Jr., a 23-year-old man, wanted for Aggravated Assault and firearm-related offenses in York, PA.

Earlier today, deputy U.S. marshals and task force officers from the Middle District of Pennsylvania arrested Freeman without incident in the 500 block of Madison Avenue, York, PA. Freeman was turned over to local authorities pending judicial proceedings.

It is alleged that on March 25, 2017 Freeman shot at his victim from a vehicle. On March 27th, an arrest warrant was issued in York County by Magisterial District Judge James H. Morgan, charging Freeman with aggravated assault, simple assault, possession of a firearm by prohibited person, firearms not to be carried without license, and recklessly endangering another person.

United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The top priority of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force is to arrest violent offenders, especially those who use guns against our citizens. This arrest takes a dangerous suspect off the streets, and provides the victim with some measure of justice.”

The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with personnel from the York City Police Department, Pennsylvania State Police, York County Sheriff’s Department, the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, Harrisburg Bureau of Police and Swatara Township Police Department.
