Three sought in Gloversville shoe store holdup
GLOVERSVILLE Police are looking for three men who they say robbed the Rossbach Shoe Store at gunpoint Saturday afternoon.
Police said the three men walked into the store about 3:30 p.m. and pretended to be interested in purchasing sneakers. After a short time, one man closed the door to the store and another displayed a gun, according to police.
The men stole items from a safe and several pairs of Air Jordan sneakers, police said, before fleeing on foot west on West Fulton Street, then north on Bleecker Street. They got into a parked four-door compact car on Bleecker Street and drive north on Elm Street, according to police.
Based on witness accounts, police believe all three suspects are either Hispanic or light-skinned black men. One suspect is between 5-foot-7and 5-foot-10, with a large scar on a cheek and was possibly in his 30s. A second man is between 6-foot and 6-foot-2, possibly in his late 20s or early 30s and had a tattoo of numbers or letters in a line on his left forearm. A third suspect had a stocky build, is between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot-8 and was wearing a red shirt and red hat.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Gloversville police at 773-4503.
