Posted: Updated:

A Harrisburg man was arrested early Wednesday after police say he tried to rob a man in Lancaster at gunpoint.

Lequan Baylor, 22, was charged with robbery and firearms offenses, police said.

The victim, a 23-year-old Lancaster man, reported that three people approached him and one asked to use his cell phone when he got out of his car in the 700 block of North Lime Street around 12:45 a.m.

When he refused and continued to walk to his home, the victim said a man in the group walked onto the porch to his apartment building, pulled a gun and demanded the keys to his car.

The victim refused to hand over his keys while the gun was pointed at his face, and the man with the gun eventually walked away, police said.

Baylor was arrested after he ran from responding officers and was identified by the victim, police said. A loaded .40 caliber Glock pistol was found during the investigation.

Police said Baylor acted alone in committing the robbery. The two people with him were released without charges.
