Kenmore police search for robbery suspects

Tonawanda News — Kenmore patrol officers are searching for suspects from an alleged armed robbery Thursday on Stillwell Avenue. 

A police officer met with the victim after the robbery at 7 p.m. He told the officer that he was in his driveway facing the trunk of his car when he noticed two males on a black BMX bike.

When the victim turned to get a better look, the bike rider turned around and peddled toward him. The bike then pulled behind a white van parked in the street. 

The male jumped off the handle bars and lifted up his T-shirt pulling out a black pistol from his front waist band. The male said, “What’s up,” and “This is not the time to act soft.”

The victim emptied his pockets and handed over his iPhone. During the robbery, the second black male sat on his bike observing. The pair then fled eastbound on the bike. 

The victim and onlooking neighbor stated the suspects were between 17 and 19 years old. Both had a skinny build and were about five-foot-nine. The male sitting on the handle bar was described as a light-skinned black male, and he was wearing a white T-shirt and khaki shorts. 

Another neighbor on Stillwell Avenue spotted the suspects next to a red four-door sedan parked on Winchester Place. The male on the handle bars got into the vehicle and drove away, while the man on the bike peddled toward Crosby Field.

A Town of Tondawnda Police Department K-9 also responded to assist with the investigation.
