Greater Sudbury Police arrested and charged a 29-year-old man in connection to three robberies that occured between Sunday night and Monday morning.
At 7:55 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 1, a man entered a convenience store on Elm Street and demanded money from the cashier. Another customer entered the store causing the man to flee on foot with a single item of minimal value.
Officers arrived on scene moments later and were provided with a description of the man.
Just before 12:30 a.m. Monday morning, the man entered a convenience store on Notre Dame Avenue and demanded that the cashier open the till. The employee stated that he was unable to open the cash register and the man fled the store on foot.
Shortly after 12:30 a.m. the same man entered a fast food storefront on Notre Dame Avenue, and stated “this is a robbery” and demanded that the employee open the cash register.
The man once again fled the scene on foot; empty handed as there was no money in the cash register.
Officers arrived minutes later and found the man on Murray Street. None of the employees were injured during their interactions with the man.
A 29-year-old man has been charged with three counts of robbery.
He was held in police custody and attended Bail Court Monday to answer to the charges.
