Manchester market robbed for a third time in 11 days
Police don't know if the same man is responsible for all three robberies at the 912 Somerville St. market, but investigators said the description of the gunman bears a resemblance to the man in the other two robberies. It suggests the three robberies may be connected but police said they have not confirmed it.
Saturday's robbery happened about 7 p.m. The 24-year-old clerk told police a masked man armed with a gun robbed the store of cash and cigarettes. The man entered the store, pointed the gun at the clerk, told him to go behind the counter and remove the cash from the register.
He also told the clerk to give him his wallet, but when he was shown it was empty, he didn't take it. Instead, he demanded cigarettes and then fled the store with the cash and a carton of Newports and a carton of Camel Blue.
The robber is described as a 24-year-old black man, about 6-foot-2, with a medium build. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, a black baseball cap, a black bandanna over his face, black gloves with white markings on top and black pants. He wore black and red sneakers.
The other robberies happened on Oct. 18 and Oct. 22. The store also was robbed on Jan. 28 by a man armed with a shotgun.
