Back in July, we showed you surveillance video from the Congress Street Market, where French fought with a store clerk - who was also armed with a bat.

This was one of five hold-ups at convenience stores in the city in two days.

French is in the Rensselaer County Jail, awaiting sentencing on September 25.
