Warminster police search for attempted homicide suspects
WARMINSTER Police seeking two suspects in an attempted homicide asked Saturday for the public's help, releasing names and photographs of two men police say told a man they would kill him.
Officers received arrest warrants for Francisco Luis Valentin and Quaemeir Davae Quay Willis, both 21, whom they say lured a man away from his home in the Warminster Heights section of the township around 11 p.m. Thursday.
They then "made statements that they were going to kill him," police said in a statement. Valentin is believed be armed. Valentin and Willis got into a car, telling the victim they would return; he was able to run away and call police.
Around 5 p.m. Friday, the police received information suggesting one suspect was in a home on the 2600 block of Horsham Road in Upper Moreland Township. He wasn't there, police said, so the search continues.
Officers described Valentin as a 5-foot-7 Hispanic man, weighing about 150 pounds, with numerous tattoos on his neck and face. Willis, they said, is a 5-foot-8 black man, also about 150 pounds, with tattoos on his neck, arms, and chest.
Anyone with information is asked to call 911 and not approach Valentin or Willis. Callers can remain anonymous, and can also call the Warminster Township Police Department at (215) 343-0100. - Jonathan Lai
