Three Accused Of Violently Assaulting An Elderly Jamestown Woman

JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – Three people are accused of violently assaulting an elderly woman during a home invasion robbery in Jamestown.

At around 5:30 p.m. on Monday 47-year-old William Buckley, 34-year-old Joshua Ryan and 29-year-old Joneece Talley are accused of breaking-into a residence, tying up a 73-year-old victim to a chair and at gunpoint assaulting the woman, all while allegedly stealing property from the residence.

Talley and Ryan were taken into custody mid-day on Tuesday with the police department’s SWAT team arresting Buckley at a Forest Avenue address.

Buckley, Talley, and Ryan are all charged with robbery, burglary, criminal use of a firearm, unlawful imprisonment, conspiracy, assault, criminal possession of a weapon and menacing.

Buckley faces the additional charges after drugs were allegedly discovered at his address. Moreover, 33-year-old Cameron Strasser and 38-year-old Ryan Gifford were charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.

This home invasion, police say, was a targeted, horrifying act of violence against an elderly victim who, although injured, is expected to make a full recovery.


The story has been corrected to indicate the victim was an elderly woman, not man.
