Rochester man arrested on felony robbery charges

A 34-year-old Jackson Street man was arrested after a Monday morning robbery at George and Ed's convenience store.

The Rochester resident now faces a felony robbery charge, as well as a misdemeanor obstructing government administration charge. 

Police claim the suspect entered the store Monday at about 8 a.m. wearing a mask. A witness reportedly told police that the suspect appeared to be drunk as he demanded money from a clerk and pointed what appeared to be a silver gun.

A second witness reported seeing a man matching the description of the suspect shoving cash into a pocket while leaving the store. That man reportedly ran from the convenience store toward Jackson Street.

According to a media report, police spoke to people in the Jackson Street area, including a person who saw someone hop a fence and go into an apartment.

Police then used a search warrant to enter the residence identified by the neighbor and found a mask matching the one described by robbery witnesses. Officers also reportedly found matching clothing at a nearby dumpster, as well as a silver BB gun.

A TV station report on the incident identified the object not as a BB gun, but as a semiautomatic firearm. The report also identified the mask as a handkerchief and suggested that two men robbed the store, with one serving as a lookout.

During his arraignment, the suspect in custody denied robbing the store.

As we can see, there are multiple versions of events circulating. A criminal defense attorney's job is to protect a client's rights and to present to the court the case for the defendant, free from media errors and speculation.
