Reward Boosted for Leads in Binghamton Attack
The reward fund has increased for information in connection with a horrific attack on a student on Binghamton's West Side.
More than 14 months ago, 20-year-old Jason Green was critically injured during a robbery at the Ice House at 15 Charlotte Street.
Authorities said the Binghamton University student was hit in the head with an object and robbed. The incident happened during the early morning hours of November 15, 2015.
City police late Tuesday afternoon announced that an anonymous donor has offered $5,000 for information that leads to the arrest and successful prosecution of those responsible for attacking and robbing Green.
With that donation, the total reward now stands at $7,000. The student's family and the city previously had posted $1,000 each for information in the case.
Police said Green's recovery since the attack "has been very difficult for him." Detectives said they have had few leads in the investigation.
People with information may contact the Detective Bureau at 607.772.7080.
The announcement of the additional reward money came exactly one year after the mysterious attack on three other Binghamton University students. In that downtown incident, two women and a man were accosted by three strangers.
One of those students, Rebecca Lisoski, was injured in the attack, which happened two blocks from city police headquarters.
Lisoski appeared on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program Tuesday morning to discuss what has happened since the incident. She said she had recovered from her injuries and is completing her studies at Binghamton University.
Lisoski praised the work of police investigators who tracked down the suspects in the attack.
