Police: man selling cellphone conspired to rob buyer

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police say a man pretending to sell a cellphone to another man was actually part of a conspiracy to rob him. 

According to Susquehanna Township Police, the robbery occurred on the 3600 block of Brookridge Terrance when the victim, who was attempting to buy a cellphone from 18-year-old Daryl Walker, was robbed from behind by two men, one armed with a pistol. The men, 18-year-old Gregory Rivera-Morel and 22-year-old David Porter, demanded the victim's money and phone and then fled in a car driven by 19-year-old Trisha Schneider. 

Police say Walker, who had conspired with Rivera-Morel and Porter in a plan to rob the victim, then took off after the car. The car stopped and Morel then threatened Walker with a gun. 

Each of the alleged perpetrators were from Harrisburg and have been charged with robbery and criminal conspiracy. Morel, who had the gun, is also charged with carrying a firearm without a license, terroristic threats, simple assault and persons not to possess a firearm.

Morel was arraigned and placed in Dauphin County Prison on $20,000 bail and a probation detainer. Walker and Porter were arraigned and released on unsecured bail. Schneider has not yet been arraigned.
