WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - A Fort Drum man is accused of trying to rob someone last month.

Watertown police say 21-year-ol Naseem Williams was allegedly in possession of what appeared to be a handgun when he attempted to steal money from the victim at Maywood Terrance in Watertown on March 11.

He was arrested Tuesday and charged with three counts of second-degree attempted robbery, fourth-degree attempted grand larceny, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, and second-degree harassment.

Williams was arraigned in Watertown city court, where he was released and turned over to the Fort Drum Provost Marshal Office.
