Help from residents lead to arrest of Rochester man Friday
Domenic Beraldi, who had warrants issued for two separate incidents, was charged with robbery and criminal trespass after police found him inside a parked vehicle at the Wal-Mart on Farmington Road — Route 11 — Friday evening.
On Monday evening, Beraldi allegedly entered the Rite Aid at 190 Wakefield St. — Route 108 — with a bag, which he filled with “numerous items throughout the store,” police said. As he attempted to leave, an employee confronted the man, who assaulted the employee before running off with the bag full of stolen items, according to police.
Beraldi allegedly fled on foot and drove off using a vehicle parked at a nearby business, police said.
Using witness accounts and video surveillance, investigators identified Beraldi and a warrant was issued for his arrest. He was also wanted for criminal trespass in connection with an incident which occurred June 18, according to police.
