- The long arm of the law apparently caught up with a Harrowgate man. He was arrested Wednesday for a murder back in April.

Police say early April 10, at about 2:20am, officers were called to a report of a ‘person with a gun’ on the 200 block of E. Allegheny Avenue in Fairhill.

They found 26-year-old Raymond Pantoja from Olney lying on the street with a gunshot wound to his chest.

Pantoja was taken to the hospital, but pronounced dead shortly after.

Now, we learned homicide investigators developed Giovany Perales, 30, as a suspect.

Wednesday, they found him at his home in the 200 block of Wellens Street, where he was arrested without incident.

Perales is charged with murder and related offenses.
