A Cohoes man has admitted to robbing a man at knifepoint last November.

At the time, Patrick Kearns, 33, was trying to get ahold of a bag of tobacco products outside spindle city market.

Police say after Kearns was arrested, he offered the defendant money in an attempt to get him not to testify against him.

Kearns faces five years in state prison, followed by a period of post-release supervision, when he is sentenced in April.
