West Chester, Pa. (YC) – 29-year-old Barry Baker of Georgetown is on the run after posting $2,500.00 bail on May 22, 2017. 

Baker is accused of simple assault, harassment and disorderly conduct following an attack captured on security cameras where Baker sucker punched a man with cerebral palsy outside a convenience store.

It happened outside the 7-Eleven at 200 South High Street in West Chester around 2:30 a.m. back on May 10.

“This defendant is a bully. Every decent citizen should be outraged by the defendant’s conduct,” said Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan in a news release regarding the convenient store attack. “The victim is to be commended for keeping his cool and notifying the police.”

Chester County Judge Matthew W. Simcox increased Baker’s bail to $500,000.00 cash as a result to his failure to appear in court. Furthermore, the United States Marshalls are on the hunt for Baker. Anyone with information regarding Baker’s whereabouts are urged to contact the U.S. Marshal’s Tipline at 866-865-8477. There is a $5,000.00 reward for information leading to his arrest. 

Among his past crimes? Robbing veterans’ cemeteries.

Baker has been in and out of jail, and is on probation for a 2009 theft case.

In 2007, he pleaded guilty and served time for selling flag holders from veterans’ grave-sites to a scrap-metal company.
