Henrietta, NY (April 3, 2023) A man is in custody today after being stopped from stealing a car at the Delta Sonic in Henrietta on Saturday afternoon.

On April 1, 2023, at 2:25 p.m., Monroe County Sheriff's deputies responded to Delta Sonic at 2970 West Henrietta Road in the Town of Henrietta, for the report of a man with a gun. Upon arriving, the deputies discovered a man entered the victim's vehicle while he was outside the vehicle preparing to pump gas. The suspect drove away from the pumps with the victim's wife in the passenger seat, yelling for the suspect to stop. The victim ran after the car and drew his legally owned handgun, attempting to stop the suspect. The man stopped the vehicle while struggling with the victim's wife and the victim could open the driver's door. The suspect then drove in reverse while pinning and dragging the victim with the vehicle. He drove forward and crashed into another vehicle. A witness to the incident helped detain the suspect while the victim held the suspect at gunpoint. Deputies identified the man as Keith S. Dobles, 33, of Irondequoit and took him in to custody.
