An Auburn man was sentenced to prison Thursday for attacking and robbing a man in Cayuga County.
Junnell Copes, 30, of 110 Fitch Ave., was arrested in August 2016 after a robbery near Auburn Correctional Facility.
According to the Auburn Police Department, three people were walking near State and Wall streets at around 2:30 a.m. Aug. 20 when Copes and co-defendant Vann MackNail got out of a car and assaulted them.
Police said a corrections officer at ACF called 911 after witnessing the robbery from a guard tower. APD officers then found one of the victims unconscious at 140 State St. The other two victims suffered minor injuries, but did not require hospitalization.
