Investigations continue in robberies reported Saturday night
Police are continuing to investigate an attempted robbery reported Saturday night on West Main Street, and though some subjects were located a short time after the incident was reported, no arrests have been made.
Det. Todd Crossett also confirmed there was a robbery earlier that evening on Harvester Avenue.
He said it hasn't been determined yet whether the incidents are connected, or if they are connected to an incident in late October where a man was splashed or sprayed with some sort of liquid (he wasn't injured).
The attempted robbery Saturday involved at least four males on bicycles.
An off-duty police officer working at Towne Center of Batavia that night spotted four males on bicycles riding in front of Dick's Sporting Goods shortly after the attempted robbery was dispatched to police.
Sheriff William Sheron was already in the area and deputies responded and the subjects were detained after they had entered Target.
The victim of the attempted robbery was treated at the scene for a possible eye injury.
After The Batavian reported that incident, a person called dispatch to report she had been robbed earlier in the evening on Harvester Avenue. In that case, the perpetrators got away with $20.
The incidents remain under investigation, Crossett said.
