Middletown police are hunting two suspects regarding two break-ins  of the same apartment in Genesis Court over the past weekend.

Police, according to Crimewatch, say that Bethany Ann McClain, 26, broke into an apartment in Genesis Court late Saturday night and assaulted someone.

McClain is charged with burglary and simple assault. She has a Steelton address, according to online court documents.

Police are also looking for Aaron A. Potts Jr., 36, also of Steelton according to online court documents, in connection with a break-in at Genesis Court on Saturday.

Police say the two break-ins occurred within several hours of each other at the same residence, the first incident involving McClain followed by the second involving Potts.

According to Crimewatch, Potts forced his way into an apartment, assaulted someone, and stole two cellphones from the residence before leaving.

Potts is charged with two counts of robbery and one count each of criminal trespass and simple assault, according to online court documents.

Potts is also wanted on a felony arrest warrant out of Cumberland County, according to Crimewatch.

Police ask anyone with information as to the whereabouts of McClain or Potts to contact Dauphin County Dispatch at 717-558-6900.
