Amherst police were continuing Tuesday to try to track down three suspicious men, including two would-be armed robbers, who were spotted in the Cranburne Lane-Delamare Road area of the town Monday night.

Calls came in about a man dressed in dark clothing and periodically looking over his shoulders in a suspicious manner.

While checking on those calls, officers were told by a resident of the area he had almost been robbed at gunpoint in his driveway by two men wearing dark clothing and masks and apparently armed when he returned from shopping about 8 p.m. The two men fled without getting anything from that man but detectives processed his house and the scene and collected what officers would only say was “some evidence.”

The investigations of the three men continues and anyone with information is asked to call the Amherst Police Department at (716)689-1311.
