2nd man arrested for home-invasion robbery in Manheim

MANHEIM, Pa. (WHTM) - A second man has been arrested for a home invasion robbery in Manheim.

Nathan J. Weeple, 30, of Elizabethtown, was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals late Tuesday afternoon as he tried to check into a Mount Joy Township hotel, the Lancaster County district attorney's office said.

Mark E. Donohue, 50, of Mount Joy, surrendered to a parole officer July 9.

Authorities say Weeple and Donohue broke a window and entered an apartment in the 100 block of North Main Street on July 5.

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 are jailed in Lancaster County Prison on charges including robbery, burglary, and aggravated assault.

Authorities said each has prior convictions that prevent them from having guns.
