On 11/20/2014 at 1957 Carlisle PD responded to a report of a robbery at 1580 Ritner Hwy in the Borough of Carlisle. Officers spoke with the victim who explained that she had been forced backward after the offender, Israel Alston, grabbed her around the mouth and pushed her onto her bed. The victim claimed that Alston had covered her mouth with his hand making it difficult to breath. After the victim screamed several times for help Alston tried to place a pillow over her face. The victim was succesful in removing the pillow, but Alston then grabbed a power cord and tied the victim by her ankles. Alston then took 176 Oxycodone pills from the victim and left the residence. Alston was later arrested on 11/21/2014 when he was found inside the Bosler Library.
