Albany Police are investigating a string of attacks in the City. They say in the past few days several people have been robbed either at gunpoint, or by a knife-wielding suspect. Police say it appears cell phones are the major targets.
On Wednesday Albany police say a man robbed a 41-year-old woman at knife point in the parking garage on Sheridan Avenue just before 6:00am. Police say the suspect, described as a six-foot tall black male, made off with her cell phone.
According to officials, street level robberies like this have been happening more frequently. They're not sure if the holiday season has anything to do with it.
