The man accused of robbing a beauty supply store in Batavia was arrested after allegedly trying to rob a CVS pharmacy in the Village of Owego.

According to State Police, deputies with the Tioga County Sheriff’s Office responded to an armed robbery at a CVS Pharmacy. When deputies got there they found John Malowsky, 62, of Attica, leaving the store with a bag.

Deputies say Malowsky failed to comply with orders to stop and threatened deputies with a knife. Malowsky then fled on foot until deputies caught up, disarmed him and took him into custody.

Malowsky was transported to a Binghamton-area hospital for injuries sustained.

He’s accused of robberies in Corning, Owego, and a February 9 robbery of Sally’s Beauty Supply in Batavia.
