The Chester Count District Attorney’s Office announced Thursday the filing of a criminal complaint against Barry Baker for Flight to Avoid Apprehension after Baker led police on a two-week manhunt. Baker is the man who allegedly mocked and assaulted a man with cerebral palsy outside the 7-11 convenience store in West Chester on May 10. After Baker posted bail for that incident, two additional warrants were issued for his arrest on unrelated matters, and then Baker fled. The case was investigated by Chester County Detectives. The detectives’ Computer Forensics Unit was able to examine Baker’s cell phone and determined that he was actively trying to evade police detection and apprehension during the time period following the issue of those warrants. Baker has been charged with Flight to Avoid Apprehension and will be arraigned on this new complaint in the near future.
