A South Side man is wanted in connection with a break-in and robbery on New Castle's West Side. Police have filed multiple charges against 18-year-old Julian Jackson in connection with the incident. A warrant was issued for his arrest by visiting senior District Judge Samuel Battaglia. A 34-year-old Smithfield Street resident told police he was sitting in his living room around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday when the front door opened and Jackson and two other unidentified men entered. One of them, wearing a black coat with fur on the hood pointed a gun at him, and Jackson him to lift his hands, then he checked his pockets for money, the man said. Jackson then told the gunman to shoot him but the man with the gun did not comply, the man told police. He said Jackson then went into his bedroom and searched through his belongings, taking $500 from a dresser drawer. The man tried to stop Jackson, he told police, but the other two men jumped him and hit him, then Jackson told the gunman again to shoot him and all three men ran out. Police said they are working on identifying the other two men involved. Jackson is charged with burglary, criminal conspiracy to commit burglary, criminal trespass, conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery, conspiracy to commit theft, theft and receiving stolen property.
