Sheriff’s office looks into two violent crimes


LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office wants to know who pulled off two violent crimes, just about an hour apart in Lockport.

The first happened at this Big Lots on South Transit Road Sunday afternoon. Witnesses say a fight inside the store spilled out into the parking lot, where someone was stabbed. They were taken to a hospital. The sheriff’s office is looking for a silver minivan with two men inside.

Then about an hour later, deputies were called to a robbery at a Noco Express on South Transit. They say the suspect made off in a white sedan. You can see the suspect from this incident in the included photo.

He is described as 5’9”, thin, with a scruffy beard. He was wearing a coat with a large British flag on the back.
