Cortland County Home Invasion Suspect Still at Large
Cortland County Sheriff’s officials are still looking for a fourth suspect in a home invasion robbery on October 4th.
Three suspects were taken into custody shortly after the incident in the Town of Cortlandville in which a woman was stabbed several times in the back of her legs and over three thousand dollars and cell phones were taken.
28 year old Devon Williams is described as black, standing five-feet, two-inches tall and weighing about 130 pounds with a beard and mustache. He’s been known to travel to the Syracuse area as well as other locations in Central New York.
Cortland County Sheriff’s officials say 22 year old Gennessa Thomas of Johnson City, 22 year old Dominique Coker of Syracuse and 36 year old Adam Gregg of Cortland were arrested when their vehicle was located shortly after the break-in at the Homestead Apartments.
Williams and another suspect ran from authorities with Williams avoiding capture.
The three who were taken into custody are all charged with felony counts of burglary, robbery, assault, strangulation, conspiracy and grand larceny as well as over a half dozen misdemeanor counts.
The woman who was assaulted was treated at an area hospital for stab wounds and released.
The woman’s 4 year old daughter had been threatened by the assailants, who said they were going to shoot her. No gun was actually displayed and the child was not hurt.
Anyone with information about Williams’ whereabouts is asked to call the Syracuse Police Department Criminal Investigation Division at (315) 442-5222 or Cortland County Sheriff’s investigators at (607) 753-3311.
