Local man arrested after second attempted robbery for Ellicott bank robbery Thursday...
A local man accused of holding up a bank near Falconer has been arrested after allegedly trying to rob a convenience store last night on Jamestown's southside.  City Police Captain Bob Samuelson says officers were called to the Kwik Fill service station at 342 Forest Avenue just after 11:30 p.m. Thursday.  Samuelson says 34 year-old Albert Chapman entered the store, pulled a knife and demanded cash from the register.  He ended up fleeing without any cash or proceeds... but, he was arrested.  He says city police and Ellicott Town officers were able -- though investigation -- to also link Chapman to the robbery at the Community Bank at 1982 East Main St. -- east of Falconer.  Chapman has been charged with first and third-degree robbery... and, third degree criminal possession of a weapon.  Samuelson adds that police are now looking for a darker colored Sports Utility Vehicle, and the driver because they believe that person and SUV helped Chapman arrive at, and flee the scene in Falconer.  If you have any information on the SUV and or the person, contact Ellicott Town Police at 665-7083.  Samuelson says you can also call the JPD tips line at 483-TIPS, that's 483-8477.  You can also contact their Tips 4-1-1 app.
