An 18-year-old man accused of robbing a Whitman teen at gunpoint and stealing an Ipad and cash, has been apprehended by a Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department Warrant Apprehension Unit, and arraigned on the charges.

Whitman Police Chief Christine May Stafford says Jordan Tabbi-Manning was taken into custody at his girlfriend’s house in Holbrook, and was turned over to Whitman Police at approximately 8:21 a.m. Wednesday. He was booked at the Whitman police headquarters and brought to Brockton District Court to be arraigned.

The victim told police that the suspect came to his house to buy an Ipad. The victim said he got into a car with the suspect and two other men. The victim said he was sitting next to Tabbi-Manning in the back seat when Tabbi-Manning pulled out a gun, put it to the victim’s head and demanded money. The victim gave up the money and  got out of the car, which drove up Winter Street towards Franklin Street.

Authorities had hoped the suspect would turn himself in, but they say they instead had to issue an arrest warrant.

Tabbi-Manning faces charges of armed robbery, armed assault to rob, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm without an FID card.

Police had no details on the outcome of Tabbi-Manning’s arraignment.
