1 arrested for home-invasion robbery in Manheim


Police have arrested one of two men wanted for a home invasion robbery in Manheim last week.

Mark E. Donohue, 50, of Mount Joy, surrendered himself to a parole officer Tuesday evening, the Lancaster County district attorney’s office said.

Police are still looking for 30-year-old Nathan J. Weeple, of Elizabethtown.

Authorities say Weeple and Donohue broke a window and entered an apartment in the 100 block of North Main Street late Thursday.

Weeple struck a man in the head with the baseball bat, and Donohue ordered a woman in the apartment to open two safes at gunpoint.

Two rifles and about $10,000 was stolen.

The male victim was hospitalized and required stitches.

Officials said Weeple was wearing a Guy Fawkes mask that came off during a struggle. He was known to the victims.

Donohue was not wearing a mask and was identified by the victims through photos he posted on Facebook.

Both men face charges including robbery, burglary, and aggravated assault. Authorities said they each have prior convictions that prevent them from having guns.

Anyone with information on Weeple’s whereabouts should call Manheim police at 717-665-2481.
