“We don’t want to see this happen to anybody and these violent crimes are happening and when you are less cooperative with us, it obviously hampers the investigation. It puts the citizens of the city at risk. That’s why we will continue to investigate these even without the consideration from the victim,” said Rick Lorah, Deputy Chief of Erie Police Department.

Detectives will continue to process evidence and monitor surveillance video as well as speak to witnesses until police are able to speak with the victim once again.
