Two arrested for early morning store holdup in Oakfield

BATAVIA – Two 21-year-old Oakfield men were quickly stopped and charged by Genesee County sheriff deputies early Monday morning for an alleged stickup at the 7-Eleven store at 25 South Main Street in Oakfield.

Tyler J. Penepent and Justin D. Smith were remanded to the Genesee County Jail here in lieu of $25,000 bail each after their arraignments before Oakfield Town Justice Thomas A. Graham hours after the stickup. The two suspects are being held on first-degree robbery counts. They are allegedly the ski-masked bandits who entered the store about 2:45 a.m. Monday and stole an undetermined amount of cash.
