Arizona man arrested for pair of knifepoint robberies in Montgomery County

Jonathan Hemberger, 51, was arrested in Upper Merion for a pair of knifepoint robberies.

An Arizona man was arrested over 2,000 miles away in Upper Merion Township for a pair of knifepoint robberies. 

Jonathan Hemberger, 51, was taken into custody last Friday for a knifepoint robbery of a woman in the parking lot of the AAA-Mid Atlantic on Dekalb Pike.

Investigators believe Hemberger, a Phoenix resident, robbed someone at knifepoint the previous day after the victim had used an ATM at a PNC Bank.

No one was hurt in either robbery, according to police. 

Hemberger was taken to Montgomery County Correctional Facility after he failed to post $500,000 bail.
