Johnson City Man Charged in Attempted Robbery
Police have arrested a 35-year-old man in connection with an attempted store robbery in Johnson City.
Authorities say A. Damion Cole of Baldwin Street, Johnson City, is the suspect in Monday morning’s incident at the Floral Avenue Market.
Investigators say Cole is accused of trying to rob the store at gunpoint.
Police say although the would-be bandit demanded money from the store owner, he ran out of the business after a brief struggle.
Nothing was stolen in the incident, which happened around 10 a.m. Monday.
Detectives say some evidence was seized when police executed a search warrant at Cole’s residence.
Cole was being held in the Johnson City police lock-up pending his arraignment in village court.
