Robbery in progress reported in Oakfield

By Billie Owens

A robbery is reported to be in progress at the Oakfield Pharmacy on Main Street in the Village of Oakfield.

The subject is reported to be a white male with blond hair. The Town Clerk is asked to be watchful as she has a camera in her office across the street to take pictures of the scene.

Two people are holding the suspect down on the floor inside the pharmacy.

UPDATE (12:50 p.m.): Two pharmacy workers subdued the suspect and Sheriff's deputies now have him in custody. No injuries are reported.

UPDATE (12:59 p.m.): The suspect is a parolee. A medic is requested to the scene because someone was said to be assaulted in the incident.

UPDATE (1:13 p.m.): The assault victim is said to have refused medical aid.

Thanks, Vicki.

GRAND LARCENY - NOT AUTO 3RD (3 counts) and ATT ROBBERY 2ND. He got out earlier this year from Willard, the drug treatment facility.

Sounds like the guy has a serious drug problem.

I wrote the second post ... working from written notes rather than a press release, which wasn't out yet, I must have picked up an "r" somewhere along the way. Corrected now. Thanks.
