APD responds to armed robberies and assault

ALBANY — An armed robbery in East Albany and a bicycle being stolen at gunpoint were among the incidents the Albany Police Department responded to over the weekend and into Monday, reports show.

Police responded to an armed robbery at around 12:30 a.m. on Monday at 333 S. Mock Road — the site of Hidden Oaks Apartments — Apt. 148, reports show.

Reports indicate the victim stated to police that three men with a knife jumped on him and stole money and a cell phone, as well as various other items. One of the suspects was identified by the APD as Corbin Brown, 20. The victim was identified as Shean Butler, 21.

The items taken included cash, a wallet, a driver’s license and cell phone, police said.

Butler stated to the APD that Brown and two of his friends robbed him at knifepoint, after which Brown was taken into custody. The case was still active Monday afternoon pending the arrest of the other two suspects, police said.

Prior to that, the APD responded to reports of a boy being robbed of his bicycle at gunpoint, reports show.

At 2224 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, police officials say a 12-year-old boy was riding his bicycle along the street when he was robbed of the bike at gunpoint by two unknown black male juveniles.

Earlier that day, at 7:33 p.m. at 1806 Seay Court, police responded to an aggravated assault, reports show.

The victim, Allison Hicks, 20, and the suspect reportedly got involved in a fight. During the altercation, the suspect stabbed Hicks with a knife in the upper left chest.

The cause of the fight remained under investigation Monday. Hicks was treated and released from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital for a minor stab wound, APD officials say.
