A 32-year-old Wrightstown man has pleaded guilty to the armed robbery of a Tullytown cell phone store.

Kyle Marcel Page made the no contest plea earlier this week and acknowledged in court that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him but he did not admit to the February 2017 robbery of the MetroPCS at the Levittown Town Center, police said. Court records indicate he pleaded no contest to charges including robbery, theft, retail theft, receiving stolen property and related offenses.

Police allege that Page walked into the MetroPCS and took iPhones and cash from the store after pulling a semi-automatic handgun during the robbery. He forced two employees and a customer in the back room.

A witness chased Page after the robbery but he got away by the time police arrived.

Page, according to police, pleaded guilty to unrelated crimes in Falls Township and Middletown at court this week.

Page has a previous criminal record and pleaded guilty in 2015 to lying during the murder trial of Ckaron Handy, who was convicted of killing 30-year-old Bristol Township union machinist Kevin Battista in 2006. At the time, authorities said Page lied to a grand jury investigating the murder twice in 2009 and before District Judge Joanne Kline during Handy’s preliminary hearing in 2013.

Sentencing for Page will be held in the coming months.
