The Chenango County Sheriff's Office reports that shortly after 5 A.M. on Monday, October 8th, they received a complaint of a robbery at the Mirabito convenience store on North Main St. in Sherburne.  The report says the suspect forcibly stole items and then threw hot coffee in the face of the cashier before fleeing south on North Main.  While the suspect did not display a weapon, the Sheriff's report indicated that he appeared to have a large knife in his waistband.

Later that same day, officers responded to a residence in the town of Sherburne in search of the suspect, Timothy Adams, age 34.  The suspect reportedly tried to harm himself before their arrival and then fled on foot.  Officers tracked him for about 200 yards where he was located laying down in a field.  He was transported to a Binghamton hospital in critical condition.

Sheriff's Deputies say once he is released from the hospital, he will be arrested and charged with robbery in the 2nd degree, assault in the 2nd degree, tampering with physical evidence and possession of stolen property.   Deputies  recovered several pieces of evidence the suspect reportedly tried to destroy.

Sheriff Cutting expressed his thanks to many area residents who provided information on the identity and location of the suspect.
