'Good Samaritan' Robbed at Gunpoint

An Eagleville man who offered to give three men a ride home from a West Norriton bar was allegedly robbed by his passengers at gunpoint.

According to the Pennsylvania State Police, a 28-year-old Eagleville man was robbed at gunpoint by three men who he was giving a ride home from a local bar.

According to reports, on Saturday, Dec. 22 at approximately 3:10 p.m. the victim left Tony G's South Philly Pub & Eatery in Jeffersonville with three men who he agreed to drive home. 

While driving the men home, one suspect allegedly pulled out a silver semi-automatic gun and demanded money and drugs from the driver. The victim reportedly stopped the car and the men moved him to the back seat of the vehicle.

The men continued driving with one suspect behind the wheel. During the incident, a second suspect also allegedly pulled out a gun and hit the victim twice in the face with it. The men then pulled the car over and reportedly stole various items from the victim. While the car was stopped, the victim was able to free himself from the car and flee to a neighboring home for help.

The suspects are described as a black male, approximately 6'1" and weighing 225 pounds; a white male, approximately 5'4", weighing 160 pounds and wearing a black jacket and blue jeans; and a black male, approximately 6', weighing 165 pounds and wearing a black beanie-style hat and a black jacket.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact the Pennsylvania State Police at 610-410-3835.

Michael it wasnt in Norristown if you read the article.
Jason Keyser December 27, 2012 at 02:19 PM
Well they sure as shit weren't from West Norriton. I wish all the trash would stay in Norristown.
Lisa Hobbie Orr December 27, 2012 at 02:24 PM
Its a shame people can not be kind hearted because of fear. Only a fool would turn this around and call him a dumbass. In any event does Tony G's not a video so a photo could be released
Tiff December 27, 2012 at 02:37 PM
This is why people simply don't care enough to help people anymore. Better off turning a blind eye!
diggity December 27, 2012 at 02:55 PM
Didn't this just happen to someone else there about a month ago????
diggity December 27, 2012 at 02:59 PM
Toni G's or Franks pub! It still a coke bar an thats y shit like this happens in ur Lil west norriton neighborhood! U can blame norristown but but only reason blacks come from town is to get the that money from the white boys that want coke. Money has been being made in that bar for yrs!
Michel December 27, 2012 at 03:37 PM
I apologize Jess. I'm sorry. I have been living in this cesspool for 45 years. West Norriton,(where i currently reside) is exactly that "West Norristown", just like East Norriton, is exactly that, "East Norristown". Not one to give smart alecky remarks about speeling and the such, I was around when East & West Norriton petitioned Montgomery County to have the name legally changed for zip code purposes. I was around when they built the new High School on Whitehall road, uip until then, the Norristown Area High School used be be located at what is presently A.D. Eisenhower Middle school. You see "Jess", when it came time for taxpayers, (like myself) to decide who would foot the bill for that building/football field/bus service; we had a town hall meeting and thus Norristown, West Norristown, East Norristown, became (3) separate entities- for tax purposes, and matters of tourism. My point? The driver was driving the (3) "suspects" to "Norristown". The crime occurred at Forest Ave, Main street, the tax and technical border for Norristown and "West Norriton". So before you get excited that you have corrected an elderly gentleman, use the "Google" search engine, Good day.

Jason, please believe there is trash in West Norriton! :) As of 9:19am on Thursday, December 27, 2012 - I found a piece. See how these comments make both of us appear rude and ignorant?
BrutalHonesty December 27, 2012 at 04:18 PM
sad truth diggity! did they fail to read the part about them demanding "money and DRUGS" from this good samaritan. Maybe because he was robbed, drug possession will be excused!
diggity December 27, 2012 at 04:21 PM
Exactly!!!!!!!
Big Dawg December 27, 2012 at 05:27 PM
Tony G's is a good bar and safe, nothing happened inside the bar. The " Good Samaritian" came into the bar with the guys, so he knew who they were and what he was getting into. They can't control who comes in the bar. But they do their best to keep tbe place safe. Before u make an opinion now some of the facts.
patchsux December 27, 2012 at 10:54 PM
who the hell gives rides to strangers in this day ? I doubt the police even believe that story? and what, nobody at tony G's knows these people either? I'm sure the bar has video or maybe the cameras are watching the help, yea that would sound right
jxjipper December 28, 2012 at 04:50 AM
I wanna know how can you charge the victim with drug possession when they were stolen?
Michel December 28, 2012 at 10:20 AM
@S.Nixz, WOW, a criminal is a criminal, but for you to post such ignorant racially motivated comments is really uncalled for. In this day and age, especially with a President who is African-American, your comments are extremely distasteful. I am only hoping that you see my comments and say something stupid about the President, so the Secret service can come and personally have a conversation with you. I will pray for you, and hope that all the hate does not come from the fact that your mother and sister both disrupted your family by your mother leaving your father for a black man-her dealer, and your sister having an interracial child; see I KNOW WHO YOU ARE, and you just got out of rehab, so you definitely have no room to talk. If I'm lying post your real name so we can verify the facts. GOD Bless.
diggity December 28, 2012 at 01:05 PM
Oh Michel u no his sister name? Cause I probably fd her!!! Maybe mom to!!
diggity December 28, 2012 at 01:08 PM
Big dawg I do have facts right!! C I used to work there an hang there. An cause the name changed don't mean the shit or people did!!!
Big Dawg December 28, 2012 at 03:22 PM
Diggity. Every bar in town has its problems. Tony G's has done alot over the years to clean it up and keep their customers safe and keep Drugs out of the bar, but even in the finer upscale places your gonna have drugs around. Its not the owners fault it the few customers who bring the shit in. They have good employees and a good owner who cares about the safety of his customers and employees. They have camera's to help keep shit outta there and when there is trouble its handled properly. They work closely with the police when need. So dont trash a bar untill u know whats going on now.
diggity December 28, 2012 at 04:00 PM
Big dawg I'm not trashing the bar or owners!!! I no Keith an Frank. Ur right they r good dudes. An yeah every bar got drugs that's I given. But don't act like they don't turn there heads to the shit in there. An my point is y r people trashing norristown. There been plenty of drugs coming from west norriton for yrs. It the old saying u r he company u keep. So this Guy getting robbed was his own dam fault more then likely!
diggity December 28, 2012 at 04:04 PM
And white people sell drugs too! So all use that wanna say its blacks remember the white boy got robbed for money and DRUGS!!! Idiots.
Spud December 28, 2012 at 05:01 PM
No one else thinks this is fishy? Sounds like a drug deal gone bad to me
Eve December 29, 2012 at 01:36 PM
There are many good people living in Norristown, East Norriton, and West Norriton. There is a criminal element in these areas, as well as, in most areas in our vicinity, the state, and the country. Drugs are a major factor in these crimes. I'd never condone drug dealing, but many of the jobs are paying $8.00 per hour even for those who have completed high school. Employers use temporary agencies to screen and hire employees. They use the employees up, then toss them away. No benefits, no future. TRASH is everywhere and comes in many different colors. Takes trash to know trash. And I don't buy that 'Good Samaritan' story. The samaritan was either drunk out of his mind or was looking for some ... trash.
s.nixz December 29, 2012 at 06:04 PM
