A Milford man wanted for robbing two Pike County convenient stores at gunpoint is believed to be in New York.


Nineteen-year-old Joseph Seguin is wanted in connection with the Christmas Day robberies of the Hilltop Xtra Mart on Route 6 in Milford and the Route 739 Xtra Mart in Lords Valley. Pa. State Police at Blooming Grove believe Sequin to be in New York since he has family living in Yonkers.


Sequin is described as a white male,  5’8” tall, approximately 170 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes and a distinctive birth mark on the right side of his face.
According to the police report, Sequin allegedly entered the Hilltop Xtra Mart just after 2 a.m. Christmas morning, armed with a shotgun, demanding cash from the overnight clerk, allegedly racking the gun and threatening to shoot.


He was wearing a grey hooded jacket, blue jeans, white sneakers and a white t-shirt at the time. The report said he concealed his face with what appeared to be a white shirt, and that he had a very short hair cut, like a buzz cut, according to the clerk’s description to police. He then fled the  Xtra Mart with an undisclosed amount of cash, in a dark colored, possibly green, Jeep Wrangler, heading east on Route 6.


According to the report, Sequin arrived at the Rt. 739 Xtra Mart in the Jeep Wrangler around 3:40 a.m., parked his vehicle by the gas pump, entered the store and pre-paid for gas. After pumping the gas, he entered the driver’s side of the vehicle and concealed his face with what appeared to be a white shirt, before pulling the hood of his jacket over his head and re-entering the store. The report says he approached the counter, told the clerk he had a gun in his right pocket and demanded all the money. Police say he then fled the scene with an undetermined amount of cash. They say he was wearing the same clothes as in the first robbery.


Anyone having contact with Sequin is asked to contact the Pennsylvania State Police at Blooming Grove at 226-5718.
