Arrested for armed robbery

A 31-year-old Northampton Street man was arrested Sunday afternoon for allegedly hitting a woman on the head with a hand gun during the armed robbery of $120 from her in the 1300 block of Jefferson Avenue late on March 6.

Lavelle Dozier was charged with first-degree robbery after the victim identified him while being shown a photo array of possible suspects, according to a police report. Dozier was also charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance when he was found to have a quantity of cocaine during a cell block search Sunday at the Erie County Holding Center.
