APD responds to weekend assaults, robberies

ALBANY — Officers from the Albany Police Department were busy with a number of aggravated assaults and armed robberies over the weekend.

One of the armed robberies took place at the Subway at 912 S. Slappey Blvd. at about 9:20 p.m. Sunday, said Phyllis Banks, spokeswoman for the Albany Police Department. Banks said the suspect entered the store armed with a shotgun, jumped the counter and took an undisclosed amount of money from the register before fleeing the scene on foot. No injuries were reported.

The suspect was described as a black male standing at 5 feet 9 inches tall and wearing all black with a hoodie.

There was also an armed robbery reported at 9:40 p.m. on Saturday at the Enmark at 2700 Sylvester Road. In that incident, Banks said, the suspect walked up to the window and demanded money at gunpoint. The cashier complied, and the suspect took an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing on foot.

The suspect in the Enmark incident was described as a black male of slender build standing at 5-feet-8-inches and weighing 130 pounds wearing all black with his face covered, Banks said. There were no injuries reported.

Among the aggravated assaults reported was an incident that took place at 10:30 p.m. Sunday at College Park Apartments at 2214 Gillionville Road, police officials say.

In that incident, Banks said two suspects — described as two black males dressed in all black with handguns — attempted to force their way inside an apartment through the front door. The two victims were able to force them back out, and the suspects fled the scene on foot after they were unable to gain entry.

No injuries were reported in that incident, Banks said.

Another aggravated assault report indicated there were three people struck by a car during the course of a verbal altercation.

Banks said the three victims stated that a woman had struck them with her vehicle during an altercation at around 7 p.m. Saturday on the 900 block of South Street. The victims were treated at the scene and later sent to the hospital. All three victims had been discharged from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital by Monday afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Tiffany Bradley, 36, was charged with three counts of aggravated assault in connection to the incident, Banks said.
