An Albany man is facing charges in Troy for using a crowbar in the robbery of East Side Auto Sales at Ferry and 5th around 5:20 p.m. Thursday afternoon.
Police say three people came into the shop and one of them had a gun. There was a struggle and the attendant in the office was hit in the head with a crowbar. They ran off but a short time later patrols picked up Raymond Dawson, 27, and charged him with assault. The other two remain at-large.
The injury to the victim appears to be non-life threatening and a pellet pistol was recovered at the scene, police said.
