UNIONTOWN, Pa. - Authorities have arrested one man accused in a violent robbery Friday night in South Union Township, but continue to look for two other men involved.

According to police, two men were attacked just before midnight while waiting on Howard Court in the Tuskegee Terrace Housinh Complex to pick someone up.

Pennsylvania State Police trooper Stefani Plume said 32-year-old Clarence Lancaster was physically assaulted by two males and then hit on the head with a gun, requiring him to get three staples.

Plume said two of the men then pointed a gun at 26-year-old Carl Seiler and ordered him to lay on the ground.

The men then took about $200 in cash from Seiler's pocket before a third suspect struck him in the head with a revolver, Plume said. The three men then fled the scene on foot.

Investigators said Brandon Epps, 21, was arrested Saturday on charges of robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and theft. His bail was set at $50,000 cash and he was remanded to the Fayette County Prison.

On Monday, police obtained a warrant for Rashaad Harris, 20. Anyone with information on Harris' whereabouts is asked to contact police.

Plume said the third suspect in the case has not yet been identified.
