Man charged following robbery in Rochester

ROCHESTER – Police arrested a Winter Street man who robbed another man along Portland Street Thursday evening.

Officers responded at 5:47 p.m. after Jerrell Luther, 34, of 17 Winter St., allegedly used physical force to take an undisclosed amount of cash from an unnamed man near School Street.

No weapons were used and the victim suffered only minor abrasions, according to police.

Police issued an alert for the man and a green Chevy Blazer used to flee the scene. The vehicle was later spotted along South Main Street by a N.H. State Trooper, who contacted police. As a result, Luther was charged with robbery. He is being held at Strafford County jail in Dover on a probation violation.

Robbery is a Class B felony, which could result in up to 3½ to 7 years in prison, if convicted.

Luther is scheduled to be arraigned in 7th Circuit Court in Rochester Friday at 11 a.m.
