Poughkeepsie Police Investigating Upper Main Street Robberies
Between Jan. 26 and Feb. 11, there have been three robberies in the upper Main Street area of the City of Poughkeepsie between North White Street and Grand Avenue.
In two of the robberies, the victims had been selling gaming systems on Facebook and had agreed to meet with a prospective buyer in that area of Main Street to complete the sale.
When the victims arrived they were met by the suspects who robbed them of their gaming system, their money, and cell phone.
In the third case, a subject was walking home in that area when he was approached and robbed of his cell phone. In all three cases, the suspects are described as three young black males, one of whom is armed with a handgun.
Several leads have been followed up on, all with negative results. Anyone with information on these robberies is asked to call the City of Poughkeepsie Police Department's confidential Tip Line at (845) 451-7577
