Cops seek leads in West Main Street home invasion


Saturday, January 4, at about 3:27am, Cobleskill Police responded to a report of a burglary and robbery at a home on West Main Street.
The victim in the home invasion told police that three unknown men entered his apartment, threatened him with what appeared to be handguns, and forcibly stole money and valuables from the apartment before fleeing in a black SUV-type vehicle.
The victim couldn’t ID the type of handguns and police have no additional description of the vehicle.

No one was injured during the incident.
The incident did not occur on the SUNY Cobleskill campus, and the victim is a student there.
However, members of the Cobleskill Police Department are investigating the incident and are being assisted by the SUNY Cobleskill University Police Department due to the incident location’s proximity to the college.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call the Cobleskill Police Department at (518) 234-2923 (station) or (518) 234-2111 (24-hour non-emergency).
