2 men from Philadelphia arrested in Wilkes-Barre

Two men from Philadelphia were arraigned Monday after city police say they found illegal drugs and firearms inside a Wilkes-Barre home.

Wilkes-Barre police say a K-9 helped catch two Philadelphia drug dealers who went out a third-story window and ran off.

23-year-old Johnnie Baker and 24-year-old Alexander Martinez face aggravated assault and other charges..

The criminal complaint says they beat a man with a gun and hammer when he came to buy drugs.

The suspects then went to a home on New Hancock Street where police say they found four guns, one of which was stolen.
