Sheriff's Office investigating armed robberies in Oakfield and Batavia

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, crime, Oakfield.

Investigators believe the same person, white male small in stature, is responsible of a pair of early morning armed robberies over the past two days.

Yesterday at 3:05 a.m., the Best Western on Park Road, Batavia, was robbed and then a person fitting a similar description robbed 7-Eleven in Oakfield at 2:09 a.m.

In the Batavia robbery, a Sheriff's sergeant was on scene in seconds and a K-9 was deployed. The suspect was tracked into Batavia but lost.

In Oakfield, the first deputy was on scene within three minutes, according to Chief Deputy Jerome Brewster. The suspect was seen running down Coe Avenue but was not located.

The suspect is described as being 5'2" to 5'6" and a small build.

In both cases the suspect displayed a handgun.

For the Best Western robbery, the suspect wore a black jacket and bandana. In Oakfield, he was dressed a brown hooded sweatshirt or jacket, bandanna and baseball cap.

Anyone with information that might assist in the investigation can contact the Sheriff's Office at (585) 345-5000.

HUH?? (Yesterday at 3:05 a.m., the Best Western on Park Road, Batavia, was robbed and then a person fitting a similar description robbed 7-Eleven in Oakfield at 2:09 a.m.)

Doesn't 2:09 am arrive 56 minutes BEFORE 3:05 am? The story makes it seem like he robbed the Best Western in Batavia AFTER he robbed the 7-11 in Oakfield
& was reported wrong??

It says in the first sentence, "a pair of early morning armed robberies over the past two days."

I'm guessing that, with the picture attached to this post, this guy will be turned in by someone in the public.
Make no mistake, Buddy! With a blue-face like that, YOU CAN'T HIDE!!
