Gettysburg Police seek assault suspects

On Friday, July 29, 2022, at approx. 1:50 a.m., officers of the Gettysburg Police Department were dispatched to a reported robbery in progress in the first block of Carlisle St. An officer responded to the area and located an assault victim who reported being chased and beaten by two suspects. This was an assault not a robbery. The victim, who was on his hands and knees at the time officers arrived, was bleeding from the head and face area. EMS was summoned for the victim. The area was canvassed by responding officers and departments. Officers also viewed video footage from the area.

Through video of the area, interviews of witnesses, and investigation, the suspects were identified as 20-year-old Trenton Howard of Gettysburg and 21 year old Taylor Rojo of Gettysburg. Arrest warrants were obtained for both suspects charging each with several charges the most serious of which is Felony Aggravated Assault. The assault appears to be in retaliation for an incident between the victim and Howard earlier in the day.

Both suspects are still at large and wanted by police at the time of this release.

Anyone having information about this incident or the whereabouts of the two suspects is asked to contact the Gettysburg Police Department through the Adams County Emergency Services Dispatch Center at (717) 334-8101.
