Man Sought In Vestal Robbery Has Been Found

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A man wanted in connection with Wednesday’s home invasion robbery in Vestal is being held by police.

Vestal police investigators say the man is in the custody of another police agency for an unrelated incident.

Police are not releasing the man’s name. An investigator told WNBF News he hasn’t been formally charged in the Vestal incident. He doesn’t know when charges will be filed in that case.

Investigators say a man forced his way into a South Jensen Road home early Wednesday afternoon after ringing the doorbell. He held a 28-year-old woman at knifepoint for nearly an hour before leaving the house with cash.

The woman’s two-year-old son was nearby during the incident. Her one-year-old daughter was asleep in her crib in a bedroom.

The mother fled with the two children after she was certain the intruder had left the area. She took them to a neighbor’s house and called police.

The robber had been armed with a kitchen or chef’s knife.

Police say although they have the suspect in the home invasion incident is in custody, people should always be vigilant by keeping all doors locked. They also should exercise caution when opening the door to a stranger.
