Police say an attempted robbery Tuesday night led to a high speed chase and the assault of three Saint John Fisher College employees.

On Wednesday, Michael Mahoney, 26, was arraigned at Strong Memorial Hospital on two counts of second degree assault.

Police in Macedon say he tried to rob a woman outside Flaherty's restaurant. Officers chased Mahoney, but say they called off the pursuit because of high speeds.

According to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, Mahoney then crashed his car along Interstate 490, ran from the scene, and then jumped a fence onto the St. John Fisher College campus.

Deputies say he then tried to steal a woman's car in the parking lot, but two Saint John Fisher employees stepped in to help. Authorities say Mahoney then assaulted all three of them with a baseball bat, then took off again.

Deputies did find and arrest him.

Two of the St. John Fisher workers went to the hospital to be treated for injuries.

Mahoney also faces charges of attempted robbery, resisting arrest, DWI and other traffic violations. He's being held by the Monroe County Sheriff's Office on $100,000 cash bail. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
