Harrisburg, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane announced
the arrests of Anu-Malik Johnson – a 21-year old York man – and Jonathon
Julius Martin – a 31-year old man formerly of York.
2, 2019, the West Manchester Township Police Department in York County
investigated a shooting death that occurred within a movie theater. On
December 5, 2019, detectives charged Anu-Malik Johnson with Homicide for
his role in the incident. Attempts to find Johnson around York were
unsuccessful and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force
was asked to apprehend them.
Members of the fugitive task force
investigated and learned that Johnson would likely be found with
Jonathon Martin. On December 3, 2016, the Springettsbury Township Police
Department charged Martin with multiple offenses – most notably two
counts of Attempt Homicide with a firearm – after he fired into a
vehicle, striking two women. On December 8, 2016, the Pennsylvania Board
of Probation and Parole charged Martin with absconding from parole
supervision (based on a conviction for drug distribution). Martin fled
York after the shooting and remained a fugitive.
This morning at
about 7:00 a.m., the fugitive investigation led officers to the first
block of Oak Street in Pennsville, New Jersey where both men were
arrested without incident. They were turned over to Salem County (New
Jersey) officials to await extradition to Pennsylvania.
States Marshal Pane stated, “It’s the Marshals Services’ duty to ensure
that those charged with violent crimes have their day in court. It is my
sincere hope that the community and victim’s family will find some
measure of comfort knowing these suspects will face justice.”
USMS Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania is
comprised of 20 state, county and local police agencies; including the
York City Police Department, the Pennsylvania State Police, the
Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, the York County Sheriff’s
Office, the York County District Attorney’s Office and the Spring Garden
Township Police Department - all of whom participated in this arrest.
The task force was also assisted by the West Manchester Township and
Springettsbury Township police departments.
