A Scranton man was arrested Monday after police said he fled from officers before car-jacking someone.
Thirty-two-year-old Anthony McGuire was at the Monroe County Courthouse in Stroudsburg for an unrelated matter. It was discovered by Monroe County Sheriff’s Officers that there was an active arrest warrant for McGuire out of Lackawanna County. When officers attempted to arrest McGuire he fled.
Police said McGuire confronted a person sitting in a white UGI truck. McGuire directed them to get out of the vehicle and when they failed to cooperate he physically drug them from the vehicle, entered it and fled the scene in the vehicle.
McGuire was charged with felony counts of robbery of a motor vehicle and robbery.
