Man Charged with Robbery, Assault of Hatboro Woman

A Philadelphia man allegedly "pushed his way inside" his ex-girlfriend's Hatboro apartment, hit her in the head with a handgun and stole her cell phone and wallet, according to police. 

Dominic Akeem Moore, 22, of the 1100 block of Rosalie Street, was arrested on Sunday and charged with three felony counts of robbery, as well as theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property and simple assault, all misdemeanor offenses, and a summary charge of harassment. 

Police allege that Moore went to the North York Road apartment of his 19-year-old ex-girlfriend around 8:22 p.m. on Sunday. After allegedly stealing her phone and wallet, police said Moore fled the scene southbound on North York Road in his black Nissan Maxima. 

Soon after, an alert Abington Police officer saw Moore driving the vehicle south on Old York Road in Abington, according to Hatboro Police. The vehicle was stopped and the driver was subsequently identified as Moore. 

He was taken into custody and returned to Hatboro Police headquarters. The victim’s mobile phone was recovered from within Moore’s vehicle, police said. The woman was treated and released from Abington Memorial Hospital following the incident, police said. 

At a preliminary arraignment conducted Monday by Hatboro District Judge Paul N. Leo, bail was set at $50,000 cash and Moore was remanded to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility in lieu of bail. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Jan. 23 before Judge Leo.
