One suspect from an aggravated robbery of a home on East Maple Street was arrested on Friday by North Canton police and U.S. Marshals. 

On Feb. 26 at 2:20 a.m., North Canton police responded to a 911 call from a man who reported he was robbed in his home and was running from intruders. 

Police responded to the 900 block of East Maple Street where the incident occurred. 

According to police, two men and one woman were living in the home at the time of the call. Two black men entered the home, located the male residents in their bedrooms, and ordered them at gunpoint to go downstairs. While doing so, the suspects were demanding money. 

Police said one male victim gave a suspect his rent money. The other victim was able to run out the front door, escape from the suspects, and get to a neighbor's house to call police. No one was injured in the incident. 

North Canton police were able to arrest one suspect, identified as Isiah Earvin Martin, 25, of Canton. Police had the help of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force to arrest Martin, who had outstanding warrants secured by North Canton police. 

Martin was charged on one count of aggravated robbery and two counts of aggravated menacing. The bond for the robbery was set at $50,000 and the bond for the menacing was set at $1,000.

Police said Martin was booked in Stark County Jail.
