JAMESTOWN, N.Y. - An Ashville man is charged with robbery and burglary after a home invasion early Friday morning.
Police say the incident happened just after 1:30 a.m. at a home on Pershing Avenue.
Three men allegedly forced their way into the home, bound a victim with duct tape, and then beat him. The suspects got away with a safe, cash, jewelry, coins, and clothing. Police say the suspects were armed with a billy club and machete.
The victim was taken to WCA Hospital and then transferred to Hamot Medical Center.
Police searched two homes Friday in Ashville and West Ellicott.
Robert W. Ellsworth, 22, was charged in connection with the crimes. An unnamed 17-year-old suspect was also arrested and charged with criminal possession of stolen property and possession of marijuana.
Police are still looking for the third suspect.
