Easton Man Charged in Home Invasion
Malcolm Pendleton, already in prison for Wilson robbery, faces new charges.
An Easton man already serving time for an armed robbery in Wilson is facing new charges related to a home invasion and shooting in the city earlier this year.
Easton police say Malcolm Pendleton, AKA "Moose," broke into a home on the 1300 block of Washington Street in March and fired a shot at a man inside.
According to court records, Pendleton, 23, was linked to the crime after being arrested for an armed robbery in Wilson. Police say the state police crime lab was able to match a bullet fired during the Easton shooting to the gun Pendleton had with him when he was arrested.
He was also identifed by witnesses from a photo lineup, police said.
Pendleton, of the 1000 block of Washington St., is already in state prison at Camp Hill for the Wilson robbery. He was arraigned via a video-feed Tuesday before District Judge Richard Yetter in Wilson on two counts of aggravated assault, one count of simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, and using a firearm without a license.
