The Erie County District Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday that 23-year-old Ronald Hough, Jr.; his father, 53-year-old Ronald Hough, Sr.; 42-year-old Kenneth Land; and 16-year-old Anthony Cole are all charged with first degree robbery. Hough, Jr. was additionally charged with first degree attempted murder and second degree criminal possession of a weapon. And 20-year-old William Stroud is charged with second degree criminal possession of a weapon.
