A former Sharon man federal marshals chased for more than a week in western Pennsylvania waived attempted homicide charges against him to court last week before a Washington County district judge.

Richard Pruden, 23, of Washington, Pa., waived charges stemming from an alleged slashing on June 14 in a motel parking lot near Washington, police said.

Pruden, who has relatives here, was picked up around 11 a.m. on July 9 after jumping out a window in the 900 block of Roemer Boulevard, Farrell.

Pruden’s capture ended a three-day search by federal marshals in the Shenango Valley. Marshals went door to door on June 7 at Willow Village apartment complex on West Budd Street in Sharon.

Marshals believe relatives or friends here helped Pruden elude the manhunt.

In addition to attempted homicide, Pruden faces a long list of charges including robbery, aggravated and simple assault.

Pruden and Trey Willis, 22, of Washington, sliced the throat of a Honduran immigrant staying at the motel, causing life-threatening injuries to his neck, police said.

Willis turned himself in to police June 20.

Pruden remains in jail after failing to post bond.
