Police arrest suspect in Craigslist robbery/assault

Elizabethtown police arrested a 19-year-old Elizabethtown woman yesterday in connection with an alleged robbery and assault at MoviE-town in November. Police had previously issued an arrest warrant last Friday.

Amber Consylman was arrested without incident after police received information at about 6:30 p.m. that she had returned to her residence in the 400 block of Aberdeen Road. Officers from Northwest Regional Police assisted borough officers. Consylman was charged with robbery, criminal conspiracy to commit robbery, aggravated assault and theft from a motor vehicle. She was arraigned at night duty court and committed to Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Police said Consylman allegedly met a man on Nov. 5 at MoviE-town who had responded to an advertisment on Craigslist about buying a television. According to the police report, she led the man toward the rear west side of the building. As they passed a blind corner, an unknown male attacked the victim with a baseball bat, hitting  him in the head and arm. The victim was able to escape. According to media reports, he was treated at a local hospital for traumatic injuries to his head and arm.

I asked borough police Chief Jack Mentzer about the male suspect, who had not been identified or arrested as of about 7:45 p.m. yesterday.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Elizabethtown Police Department at 717-367-1835.
