October 11th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

On Friday, October 11, 2019, the Cumberland Police served an Arrest Warrant on Anthony Horn Jr., age 21 of Cumberland, Maryland.  The Warrant stemmed from an October 10, 2019 investigation into a robbery that occurred in an alley near Queen City Drive.  Officers learned from the victim that Horn Jr. had approached him demanding money that he claimed to be owed.  Horn Jr. and other suspects then assaulted the victim and stole items from his pockets.  Officers further learned that a knife was displayed during the incident. Subsequently, the investigating officers applied for charges on Horn in District Court.  An Arrest Warrant was then issued charging Horn Jr. with assault first degree, assault second degree, conspiracy to commit robbery, affray, conspiracy to commit assault first degree, armed robbery, and theft less than $100.   

On Friday, October 11, 2019, officers responded to a residence in the 200 block of Avirett Avenue to serve the Arrest Warrant. When officers attempted to arrest Horn Jr. on the Warrant, he refused to cooperate with officers and locked himself in an interior room inside the residence. Officers were ultimately able to gain access to the room and take Horn Jr. into custody without further incident. Consequently, Horn Jr. was charged with obstructing and hindering and resisting arrest. 

Horn was served with the Arrest Warrant and on-view charges and transported to the Allegany County Detention Center pending his Initial Appearance in District Court. Following his Initial Appearance he was held without bond in both cases.

On October 10, 2019 at 10:53 am, the Cumberland Police responded to Queen City Pavement for a subject refusing to leave private property.  Upon arrival officers observed Katelin Moorehead, age 25 of Cumberland creating a disturbance with the proprietor of the property. Officers were advised that Moorehead was asked multiple times to leave and was refusing.  Officers again made multiple attempts to get Moorehead to leave the property, but she continued to refuse and create a disturbance.  Subsequently, Moorehead was placed under arrest for failing to obey and trespassing.  Moorehead was transported the Cumberland Police department where she was issued Criminal Citations and released pending trial in District Court.
