JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – The three people accused of violently assaulting an elderly woman in Jamestown this week have been remanded to Chautauqua County Jail.

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.

The three are charged with robbery, burglary, criminal use of a firearm, unlawful imprisonment, conspiracy, assault, criminal possession of a weapon and menacing.

On Thursday, this trio appeared in Jamestown City Court where Buckley was remanded to the Chautauqua County Jail without bail due to having two or more prior felony convictions. Talley and Ryan were jailed with bail set at $500,000 cash or $1,000,000 property bond.

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.
