JAMESTOWN – A Jamestown man accused of robbing a bank and gas station last week was ordered held pending grand jury action.
The Jamestown Post-Journal says 34-year-old Albert Chapman was sent back to Chautauqua County Jail without bail following a preliminary hearing in city court. The Jamestown man is facing charges of first- and third-degree robbery after he allegedly walked into Community Bank NA in Falconer last Thursday and demanded money.
He was later arrested after attempting to rob the Kwik Fill gas station on Forest Avenue at knife-point.
Police are still investigating the bank robbery and are asking the public for information regarding the driver of an SUV that was reportedly used to transport Chapman to and from the bank in Falconer.
