New York has several robbery statutes ranging from robbery in the third degree all the way up to robbery in the first degree. Robbery involves the theft of something from the victim by force. So depending on the type of force that’s used, whether or not there’s an injury that is caused during the actual theft, whether a weapon is used, those things will play a large part in determining what level of robbery you’re ultimately charged with.
