Police suspect same man in three Manchester robberies
Police responding to the first reported robbery this week, at about 8:10 p.m. Thursday at the Hess Gas Station at 311 Queen City Avenue, were told a man entered the store and brandished a knife with a black blade.
The robber handed the clerk a white plastic bag and demanded cash. He fled the store on foot with an undisclosed amount.
Police who responded about 3:30 a.m. Friday to a reported robbery at the 7-Eleven at 85 S. Main St., learned a man had tried to rob the store. The clerk said the man produced a white plastic bag and told him to fill it with money.
The clerk said the man kept one hand in his pocket, suggesting he had a weapon, but when the clerk noticed that hand was empty, he grabbed a bat and chased the would-be robber out of the store.
Two hours later, at about 5:30 a.m. Friday, police responded to a third robbery, this one at the Rite Aid, 122 McGregor St. The pattern was the same as in the two earlier incidents.
The robber produced a white plastic bag and demanded money. He had his hand in his pocket, as if he had a weapon. The clerk put money in the offered bag and the robber left the store.
Police information officer Lt. Maureen Tessier said the descriptions provided by the clerks, as well as the surveillance images, match and are similar to the description of the man who robbed the same Hess Gas Station a week ago.
In the first Hess robbery, a clerk said a man he described as "dirty looking" entered the Hess store at 311 Queen City Avenue at approximately 11:45 p.m. Friday, March 28. He said the man did not display a weapon, but claimed to have a handgun. The robber fled on foot with over $200 cash.
That robber was described as late 40s to early 50s, gray and black beard, wearing a black and orange ski jacket with black sleeves and orange hood and wearing gray pants.
The robber in the Thursday night and Friday morning incidents was described as a 40-to-50-year-old man, average height and build. He was wearing an orange and black jacket, jeans and possibly work boots, all described as dirty.
This man wore a black scarf over his face and dark glasses. He wore a black hat in the Hess robbery, but a white hat in the 7-Eleven and Rite Aid incidents, although police said it appears to be the same hat, but turned inside out. He also wore white gloves at 7-Eleven and Rite Aid.
Anyone with information on these robberies is asked to contact the Manchester Police Department at 668-8711. Anonymous tips for cash rewards can be made through Manchester Crimeline at 6243-4040 or online at manchestercrimeline.org.
