A Pennsylvania man with an uncanny resemblance to pop hunk Harry Styles is accused of hitting a woman over the head with an automatic rifle — also grabbing her breasts — during a robbery at a Tyrone apartment, a report said.
But it was Jason Sanderlin’s mugshot that grabbed all the attention, with WTAJ the first to notice a “striking resemblance” to 27-year-old former One Direction star Styles.
Sanderlin, 21, shares similar features — but is given away by a large “33” tattooed on the side of his forehead.
The suspect is also listed as 5’4” tall in court records, the station said — positively diminutive compared to Styles’ 6-foot frame.
Sanderlin is accused of ordering three people to get on the ground after kicking down the door of an apartment on Jan. 21 and attacking the woman as she tried to resist being zip-tied, WTAJ said. He allegedly took $400 in cash and a stash of marijuana.
He was allegedly turned in by his longtime girlfriend who IDed him from surveillance footage — and is also charged with helping her carry out an earlier robbery, the outlet said.
He also allegedly posted a Snapchat video immediately after the robbery showing off the marijuana which he then tried to sell, the report said.
State police have charged Sanderlin with felony counts of robbery, conspiracy, indecent assault, aggravated assault, and criminal trespass along with misdemeanor counts that include false imprisonment, indecent assault, and terroristic threats, WTAJ said.
He is being held on $200,000 cash bail for that robbery, as well as $50,000 cash bail for the robbery with his girlfriend in Altoona.
