CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of a man charged in an attempted homicide in Franklin County, Pa.

Pennsylvania State Police are looking for David Dalton Garner, 24, no address given, who has been charged in an arrest warrant with criminal attempted homicide, a state police news release said.

The incident occurred on Dec. 20 in St. Thomas Township, Pa., when a man entered a home and attacked the resident and his mother before leaving in the mother's car, police said previously.

State police charged Garner in warrants with attempted homicide, four counts of robbery, and two counts each of aggravated assault, simple assault, theft and unlawful restraint, police said.

Dalton is described as 6 feet, 3 inches tall and 190 pounds with brown hair, green eyes and no facial hair.

Garner was paroled earlier this month from Franklin County Jail, where he had been serving a sentence since March 31 on charges of inhaling illegal solvents, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and receiving stolen property, a spokeswoman at the jail said.

Franklin County Crime Solvers is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for help leading to Dalton's arrest.

Anyone with more information on Dalton's whereabouts may call Pennsylvania State Police at 717-264-5161, or leave anonymous tips on the Franklin County Crime Solvers line at 717-263-3000.
