The RPPD has obtained an arrest warrant for SHAQUILLE BOWMAN, a 23 year old African American male whose last known address is in the area of 51st & Haverford, West Philadelphia. BOWMAN has been identified as being one of the two men who committed a daylight home invasion robbery in Ridley Park on Sunday, 10/16/2016.
Investigators executed a search warrant at BOWMAN's last known address early on Friday. The residents there advised police that BOWMAN was "thrown out" of the home about a week earlier. Several promising leads on his current location, as well as the identity of the second suspect are being pursued.
RPPD is extremely grateful for the immense amount of assistance and cooperation provided by the Delaware County District Attorney's Office, Criminal Investigation Division (CID) and the Philadelphia Police Dept. Specifically, Philadelphia PD's 16th District, Southwest Detective Division, SIU and Warrant Unit assisted in tracking leads that resulted in the speedy identification of BOWMAN .
While BOWMAN was not located when the search warrant was executed, the high level of cooperation and willingness to assist, exhibited by Phila PD gives us confidence that BOWMAN will be in custody very soon.
Any one with information on the location of BOWMAN is urged to call 911 or 610-565-6500 (from outside DelCo).
