Kersey, PA – At least part of the story about an armed robbery in Kersey was fabricated. The 28-year-old Kersey man who originally claimed that someone had tried to rob him on his way to work now admits that the robbery never actually happened.
He had said that a man matching the description from an earlier robbery had also attempted to rob him of his truck while he was driving.
Even though that part of the story has come to light as being false, the earlier robbery is still under investigation.
An unnamed 69-year-old Kersey man said the suspect came into his home on April 24 just after midnight and demanded any guns and money that he had. The robber ended up taking about $1,500.
If you have any information about the robbery, please call State Police in Ridgway at 814-776-6136.
