Two men, posing as prospective gem buyers, held up a couple trying
to sell their diamond through a local newspaper advertisement. The
Webster, New York, couple had advertised the "loose diamond," and
subsequently had several phone calls from two gentlemen who said
they were interested in purchasing the stone. When the "buyers"
showed up for a 4 p.m. appointment, they held the couple at
gunpoint, bound them with duct tape, and stole the diamond and other
jewelry from the home. The two suspects attempted to escape in their
Geo Tracker, but were soon pursued by the local police, -- who had
received a distress call from the victims. An officer followed the
vehicle to a cul-desac, where the suspects fled on foot. A woman in
the neighborhood, seeing one of the suspects heading straight for
her house, warned her husband. He, in turn, armed himself with a
.45-caliber handgun and prevented the man from entering. This
allowed the police to corner the suspect, Robert L. McKnight, who
was arrested and charged with robbery. Brian K. Moton was arrested
later and the jewelry was recovered.
