(Harrisburg) -- State Police are searching for an escaped inmate who they say is the suspect of a recent armed robbery in Harrisburg.

Investigators say residents arrived at their home yesterday to find a man inside wearing all black.

The man allegedly pointed a handgun and ran off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect has been identified as 25-year-old Vincent Crockenberg, of Coal Township, Northumberland County.

Police say Crockenberg has been at large since escaping from the Keystone Correctional Facility in Dauphin County on February 18.

Multiple schools were placed on lockdown after the reported robbery as police searched the area.

Crockenberg is facing multiple charges, including robbery, aggravated assault and unlawful restraint.
