Two men are accused of threatening a couple at gunpoint and striking one of the victims with a baseball bat during a home invasion robbery in Manheim last week.

Police are looking for 30-year-old Nathan J. Weeple of Elizabethtown and 50-year-old Mark E. Donohue of Mount Joy.

The Lancaster County district attorney’s office said 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. The male victim was hospitalized and required stitches.

Two rifles and about $10,000 was stolen.

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

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

Surveillance video captured the vehicle used for the robbery. Investigators said it was registered to Donohue.

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 their whereabouts should call Manheim police Detective Jeffrey Kiesel at 717-665-2481.
