Onondaga County Sheriff Kevin E. Walsh reports that several calls from the public

have helped Sheriff's Detectives identify the Syracuse man believed to be responsible for robbing a seventy

seven year old woman on Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Richmond Avenue, with robbery in the first degree, unlawful imprisonment in the 2nd degree and criminal

possession of a weapon in the 4th degree.

Bass is accused of getting into a woman's car and demanding money from her. Bass then forced the woman to

drive to two separate banks so that she could withdraw additional money. Once money was withdrawn, Bass

forced the victim to drive him to the Burger King restaurant located at the intersection of West Genesee Street and Geddes Street, where the he exited the victim's car and fled on foot.

Sheriff Walsh applauds the public's response and credits the information that was called in for Bass's arrest.

Bass will be arraigned at the Town of Onondaga Court.

Robbery in the first degree is a class B felony, unlawful

imprisonment in the 2nd degree is a class E felony and criminal possession of a weapon in the 4th degree is a
