Lancaster police have arrested a city man and are looking for a Salunga resident in connection with a shooting incident last month.

Keeshond Dwayne Cole Jr., 21, was arrested Tuesday on charges of aggravated assault, robbery, and criminal conspiracy, according to city police.

His alleged accomplice, 21-year-old Jorge Jason Font, faces the same charges but remains at large, police said.

Authorities said Cole and Font on May 26 went to the home of a 25-year-old man in the 800 block of Prangley Avenue and tried to rob him at gunpoint of marijuana and money.

When the victim told his attackers he had no cash, Font allegedly struck him in the face with a handgun and fired one shot, striking the man in the base of his neck, police said.

The unidentified victim was treated at Lancaster General Hospital and later identified the suspects from a photo array, police said.

Cole was sent to Lancaster County Prison on $15,000 cash bail.

Anyone with information on Font's whereabouts is asked to call Lancaster City Police at 717-735-3300 or Lancaster City/County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-322-1913.
