Homeless Men Charged with 4 Armed Robberies over 2 Days in August 2020 | USAO-WDPA

PITTSBURGH, PA – Two homeless residents of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, have been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of robbery, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

The four-count Indictment named Elijah Sayon and Rexford Wright, both 23.

According to Indictment, on August 3, 2020, Sayon and Wright robbed a Sunoco gas station on Donner Avenue in Monessen, PA and a Marathon gas station on State Route 51 North in North Belle Vernon, PA. The Indictment further alleges that on August 4, 2020, Sayon and Wright robbed a GetGo on Steubenville Pike in Kennedy Township, PA and a 7-Eleven on Dry Run Road in Monongahela, PA. All four robberies were at gunpoint.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of not more thanĀ 80 years in prison, a fine of not more than $1,000,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendants.

Assistant United States Attorney Rebecca L. Silinski is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, Allegheny County Police Department, Monessen Police Department, and the Monongahela City Police Department conducted the investigation leading to the Indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
