Arrest in attempted armed robbery

September 27, 2007

Albany -- Two Albany men have been arrested for the attempted armed robbery one week ago in Northwest Albany, but were chased off by the victim's pit bull.

September 20th two masked men with a shotgun ambushed a man as he walked into the back door of his home on Partridge Lane.

 Investigators arrested 19 year old Vincent Whitaker and 20 year old Macah Davis for the aggravated assault. They are looking for 19 year old Jonathan Hodges, who is also wanted for the attempted robbery. 

 But they got nothing in the robbery, because when they forced the victim into his house, his pit bull dog ran them off.

 If you have any information on Jonathan Hodges, call CRIME STOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
