Investigators say police received a report of an armed robbery at Goodwill Industries in the Price Chopper Plaza around 11:49 a.m. Friday.

When officers arrived, they were advised that a man with a knife had attempted to rob the business. Police then determined the same man robbed the Big Lots store next door.

The businesses are located on the east side of the retail center between Charlotte Street and Glenwood Avenue.

The suspect was described as a black man, about 6 feet tall with a medium build. He was reported to have been wearing blue jeans, a light-colored hooded shirt, a dark-colored mask and gloves.

The robber was last seen heading east on the railroad tracks north of the intersection of Jarvis and Charlotte streets.

Friday’s incidents were the latest in a string of recent robberies being investigated by police in Binghamton and Endicott.

This story has been updated to clarify that the incident at the Goodwill store has been classified by police as an “attempted robbery.”
