Street-corner robbery leads to arrest on West Side

A woman was standing at the corner of West Ferry and Herkimer streets Saturday when a man – whom she did not know – forcibly stole $30 from her, then ran into an apartment on Herkimer, Buffalo police said.

The woman contacted police, who found the man in the Herkimer Street apartment along with $30, police said. Juan Garcia, 53, refused to answer the door when officers arrived, so they forcibly entered the apartment, police said.

Garcia was charged with robbery, criminal possession of stolen property and obstructing governmental administration.
