Crime Spree — Three Armed Robberies Linked Say Worcester Police

Thursday, October 13, 2016

 

Crime spree hits Worcester.

Worcester police are investigating a linkage between three recent armed robberies — the most recent took place on Wednesday.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, 6’0” tall with a medium build, wearing jeans, dark shirt and a dark colored sweatshirt.

On Wednesday, October 12, 2016, at approximately 12:30 AM, a Worcester Police officer on patrol was flagged down by a male in the area of 208 Millbury Street. The male informed the officer that he was just robbed at gunpoint as he was trying to deliver food. The victim, a 44-year-old Clinton resident, stated that he was delivering food to a Ward Street apartment when the robbery occurred. 

The victim stated that he went to the apartment that was provided at the time the order was placed but no one answered. As he walked out of the apartment the suspect approached him from behind and pointed a handgun at him. The suspect demanded cash and the food. 

The suspect took an undisclosed amount of cash along with the food and fled. The victim was unhurt during this ordeal. 

The officer broadcasted the suspect’s physical description to all surrounding police units.

Shortly after a police officer that was in the area looking for the suspect of the Ward Street robbery was approached by another citizen. 

The citizen informed the officer that he was just robbed at gunpoint on Millbury Street. The victim stated that he was walking down Millbury Street when he was approached by a male in a motor vehicle. The driver pointed a gun at him and demanded his Iphone. The victim tossed the phone in the car and ran off.

The description of the driver was similar to the suspect in the earlier food delivery robbery. The suspect description is also similar to the suspect of the October 8th armed robbery of a food delivery person. That robbery also occurred on Ward Street.

Worcester detectives are working on all three robberies and believe that they are all linked to the same suspect. This investigation is ongoing, if anyone has information about this incident they can send an anonymous text to 274637 TIPWPD + your message or send an anonymous web based message at worcesterma.gov/police. Calls can also be made to the Worcester Police Detective Bureau at (508) 799-8651.
