Binghamton Police Seek Second Robbery Suspect
A parolee is being sought in connection with an armed robbery at a business on Binghamton's West Side.
Authorities say 28-year-old Dwayne Young may be hiding in the New York City area.
Police chief Joseph Zikuski says Young is suspected of being one of two men who robbed Silver and Gold Expressions at 348 Main Street on July 18.
Zikuski says one suspect, 37-year-old Sherman Norwood of Binghamton, was taken into custody early Saturday. He's been charged with first-degree robbery and criminal possession of a weapon.
Norwood was arrested after police received a disturbance call near 244 Robinson Street around 6 a.m. Saturday.
When officers arrived in the area, Zikuski says Norwood fled in a vehicle with another man. Both men jumped from the moving vehicle but they were apprehended nearby.
Police recovered some suspected heroin and a loaded semi-automatic pistol.
Zikuski says the man who'd been driving the vehicle was 29-year-old Kendu Thompson of Binghamton. He was charged with driving while intoxicated and unlawfully fleeing a police officer in a vehicle.
Norwood and Thompson were arraigned in Binghamton city court and sent to Broome County Jail.
Zikuski says anyone with information about the robbery investigation or Dwayne Young may contact the police detective bureau at 607.772.7080.
