GRAND JURY INDICTS TWO IN SEPARATE ROBBERIES

Two Niagara Falls men were indicted Tuesday by a Niagara County grand jury in connection with separate robberies in that city.

Darryl Bagley Jr., 19, of Byrd Avenue, was charged with first-degree assault, first-degree robbery and fourth-degree criminal mischief.

He was accused of repeatedly hitting cabdriver James Trayer in the head with a brick during a Nov. 1 robbery, and using a knife to cut the microphone cord on the cabbie's two-way radio to prevent him from calling for help.

Douglas K. Norman, 33, of Buffalo Avenue, was charged with first-degree robbery, petit larceny and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

He was accused of using a knife to threaten a clerk at the Coachman Motel on Third Street in Niagara Falls on Oct. 6, as he allegedly stole $40.

In a burglary case, Judge Peter L. Broderick accepted a guilty plea to attempted third-degree burglary from Nathan T. Bateman, 16, of Beach Ridge Road, Pendleton.

Bateman was accused of a break-in at a building owned by Ronald Beckensall in Niagara Falls on July 15. He will be sentenced Feb. 8.
