JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) — The person behind two armed robberies in Jamestown is behind bars, according to police in Jamestown.

Officers say they arrested Noel Vellon, a 41-year-old Jamestown man, who is accused of pulling a gun twice in two robberies that were two days apart. Police say Vellon pulled a gun on a store attendant at the 1011 East Second Street 7-Eleven early on Sunday morning, then again at the same convenience store on early Monday morning.
