The last time I used this head for a post, it was warning about intensified sobriety checks over the Labor Day weekend. This time, it relates to a mugging that took place yesterday afternoon. Gossips just received the following press release from the Hudson Police Department.
On Thursday, September 8, 2022, the Hudson City Police Department arrested 22 year old Cain G. Carothers for Robbery 1st Degree (with dangerous instrument) a class B felony, Criminal Possession of a weapon 3rd (previously convicted) class D felony, Grand larceny 4th degree class E felony, assault 3rd Degree and petit larceny both class A misdemeanors.
On Thursday, September 8, 2022, at around 4:43 p.m., the Hudson Police Department received a report that a man entered a restaurant on North 7th Street, claiming he had just been attacked on the street and that his personal property was forcibly stolen from him. HPD’s uniform patrol responded immediately to the scene. The victim told us that two males approached him while he was walking in the 700 block of Long Alley. One of the men allegedly displayed a knife and stated “I’m gonna kill you.” The two suspects then reportedly began kicking and punching the victim. During the attack the two suspects stole the victim’s glasses, wallet, credit/debit cards, and cell phone. Greenport Rescue Squad responded to the area and treated the victim for injuries he sustained during the robbery. The victim was transported to the CMH for further medical treatment. The victim’s injuries were not life threatening, and he was released from the hospital later on Thursday.
The HPD Detective division responded in to assist patrol with this robbery investigation. Shortly after the reported robbery, detectives located Cain Carothers in the 7th Street Park. Most of the property was recovered and placed into evidence.
This robbery appears to be random criminal act and the suspects and the victim have no known relationships.
Carothers was arraigned by City Judge Cheryl Roberts in the Hudson City Court. Carothers was remanded to the Columbia County Jail with no bail. He will return to Court on September 13, 2022, at 10 a.m. Carothers is currently a New York State parolee.
Detectives have identified a second suspect in this case, 42 year old Eugene Cobbins of Hudson, who remains at large and is believed to be in the Albany area.
