Two plead guilty to attacking, robbing man in Niagara Falls

LOCKPORT – Two Niagara Falls men pleaded guilty Wednesday in Niagara County Court to charges in the mugging of a man in a Niagara Falls parking lot on Sept. 27.

Jonathan P. Easterly, 23, of 61st Street, and Andre Sanders, 25, of Linwood Avenue had both been charged with second-degree robbery and assault for holding a Youngstown man down, choking him, and then taking $160 and his cellphone outside the 7-Eleven store at Buffalo Avenue and 68th Street, in the city’s LaSalle neighborhood.

The two, who pleaded to a lesser charge of attempted second-degree robbery when they appeared before Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III, will be sentenced on Sept. 15.
