The Chester County Sheriff’s Fugitive Apprehension Unit and the Chester County Sheriff’s K-9 Unit, working with the U.S. Marshals, took the man accused of sucker-punching a person with cerebral palsy into custody on Monday morning, June 5, at approximately 8 a.m. in Uwchlan Township.

Barry Baker, 29, of Georgetown, Del., is accused of assaulting the victim outside the 7-11 convenience store in West Chester on May 10. He was charged with simple assault and related offenses by the West Chester Borough Police Department. Baker was also wanted for failure to appear for a domestic relations matter and on an Adult Probation warrant.

“We’re pleased that Mr. Baker is in custody,” said Chester County Sheriff Carolyn “Bunny” Welsh. “It was a great effort by multiple agencies.”

Baker has been transferred to Chester County Prison to await a preliminary hearing.
