U.S. Marshals Task Force Arrest Moosic Aggravated Assault Suspect

Scranton, PA – Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the arrest of Tyrone Lincoln Lancaster, a 38-year old Wilkes-Barre man.

On May 19, 2020, the Moosic Borough Police Department investigated a burglary and assault at a home in the 3300 block of Birney Avenue.

As a result of their investigation, officers obtained an arrest warrant charging Lancaster with Burglary, Aggravated Assault, weapon offenses, and lesser included offenses. Attempts to find Lancaster were unsuccessful and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force was asked to apprehend him.

Today, at about 7:00 a.m., members of the fugitive task force checked a home in the 100 block of Masters Street in Scranton and arrested Lancaster after finding him hiding in a crawl space. Lancaster was turned over to the Moosic Borough Police Department.

United States Marshal Pane stated, "It's the Marshals Services' duty to ensure that those charged with serious crimes have their day in court. It is my sincere hope that the affected communities will find some measure of comfort knowing this suspect will face justice."

The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 20 state, county and local police agencies, including: the Pennsylvania State Police; the Pennsylvania Parole Board; the Wilkes-Barre Police Department; the Kingston Police Department; the Bradford County Sheriff's Office; and, the Scranton Police Department – all of whom participated in this investigation.
