KITTERY, Maine — The Kittery police chief said the department has not made any arrests from two incidents Monday evening: a robbery and attempted robbery.

Chief Ted Short held a press conference at the police station and elaborated on some of the details from the two incidents.

The first incident occurred around 7:15 p.m. on the area of Bridge Street. Short said an elderly man was walking his dog back home when an unknown male approached him from behind and said he had a knife and demanded the victim’s wallet. When the victim yelled to his wife to call the police, the subject fled without any money and without showing a weapon. The victim was not injured.

About an hour later, and about a half-mile from the first incident, another 911 call came from Village Green Drive. An elderly woman reported a man had entered her residence and demanded money. “He told her to give him all her money and she would not be hurt,” Short said.
