Dutchess County Police Need Help Identifying Two Men
Police in Dutchess County are hoping for the identities of two men who may have witnessed an elderly man get robbed.
City of Poughkeepsie Police are seeking the identities of two males that may have been witness to a robbery on February 20th in the city. On that day, according to Detective Lt. Matt Clark, police responded to a report of a robbery of an elderly man who had suffered a stroke several years before. The two males approached the victim, blocked him from walking past, and went through his pockets taking his wallet and cash. They were last seen fleeing south on Corlies Avenue towards Main Street.
Just before being robbed by two white males the victim had been at the Family Dollar near Main Street and Corlies Avenue. In surveillance photos captured from video footage from the store’s security cameras, two white males can be seen standing behind the victim while he was at the register. The two males also left the store immediately behind the victim. The police are seeking the help of the public in identifying the two males in the pictures.
If you have information regarding the identity of the two individuals, please contact the City of Poughkeepsie police department at 845-451-7577.
