YORK COUNTY — York Area Regional Police are searching for a male suspect accused of a strong-arm robbery Monday morning on Bahns Mill Road in Windsor Township.

According to police, the victim, a 50-year-old East Prospect woman, had pulled her vehicle to the side of the road to check on a tire when the suspect approached in a Honda sedan and pulled over to assist her. He allegedly asked the woman if she needed help, then asked “Do you have cash to pay me?”
