A New York man who is wanted in Bath, New York for allegedly participating in an armed robbery and stabbing incident on June 3 has been arrested in Danville.
Seven days later on June 10, Corey John Sloan, 34, was arrested by police in Danville, Virginia, where he was allegedly found to be in possession of a black Dodge pickup truck which was stolen from Steuben County, New York.
According to Sheriff McNelis in Steuben County, New York, Sloan is a person of interest in the investigation of the alleged incident, in which a person claimed he was beaten, stabbed and robbed by two men. According to a press release from the Steuben County Sheriff's Office, Sloan will be charged with first-degree robbery and assault once he is extradited.
According to documents obtained from Danville General District Court, officer R.M. Woody with the Danville Police Department had received a tip of a possible wanted individual driving a stolen vehicle on Blue Jay Street in Danville on June 10.
When confronted, Sloan allegedly gave the officer a false name, stating that he was in fact 36-year-old “Khorie Christopher Sloate.”
When the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office confirmed his real identity, Danville officers attempted to arrest Sloan, at which point Sloan allegedly resisted, saying that the officers were not going to handcuff him.
Currently, an extradition warrant has been filed in Danville General District Court, which requests that Sloan be extradited to New York to face a parole violation charge.
Sloan now faces charges in Danville General District Court of possession of a stolen vehicle, identity fraud to avoid arrest and obstruction of justice by resisting arrest.
Sloan is being held in the Danville City Jail, and has a hearing scheduled in Danville for Aug. 8.
