BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A 21-year-old Buffalo man admitted Friday that he robbed five people, one of them twice, in Riverside last year.

Jordan Williams robbed his first victim on June 15 last year, though no property was taken in that incident. A month later, he began a robbery spree that would last two weeks. In each incident, he would assault the victim by hitting them, knocking them off a bicycle, or threatening them with a BB gun.

The victims ranged in age from 19- to 67-years-old. He stole bikes, portable video games, cash, and jewelry.

Williams pleaded guilty Friday to four counts of second degree robbery and one count of second degree attempted robbery.

He faces a maximum sentence of 50 years in prison when he is sentenced in May.
