BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - 50-year-old John Jaycox has been arraigned on an indictment with several charges today, according to the Erie County District Attorney's Office.
The charges include:
Attempted murder in the first degree
Attempted assault in the first degree
Attempted robbery in the first degree
Assault in the second degree
Attempted sexual in the first degree
On March 15th, 2018, Jaycox entered a Choco-Logo chocolate shop in Broadway and was accused of attacking a 60-year-old employee.
“What makes this case particularly disturbing is that there is no connection between the victim and the defendant,” said D.A. John Flynn. “This appears to be a random act of violence, and it is imperative that this individual is put behind bars for a long time if convicted.”
Jaycox is scheduled to return to court on May 29th for a pre-trial conference.
If convicted on all charges, Jaycox faces a maximum of 25 years to life in prison.
