In a story from News 10 ABC, the first robbery took place at the Riverfront Center, at the Suman Convenient Store, just after 7:00 p.m., Monday. A man, who allegedly had a hand gunwent into the store and demanded cigarettes, and cash from the register.

The second robbery happened about 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday at Upstate Electronics, which is on Market Street. The clerk was allegedly threatened by a man that walked in, showed him a knife and demanded money. The clerk handed over the money, but also received a cut on his hand. He went to St. Mary’s Hospital for that injury.

Authorities aren’t sure if the same person robbed both places, and are conducting an investigation. If anyone has any information that could be helpful about the robberies, please give The Amsterdam Police Department a call at 518-842-1100
