Police: 4 armed robberies in Manchester may be connected

MANCHESTER - Police are investigating four early morning armed robberies throughout the city of Manchester - and they say it could be the same suspect in all of the cases.

The first armed robbery occurred at 2:22 a.m. at the 7-Eleven on Webster street.

Then - eight minutes later - another similar incident at the 7-Eleven on Queen City Avenue about 2:30 a.m. The suspect is believed to have gotten away with cash and cigarettes from this location.

Ten minutes later - at 2:40 a.m. - a third armed robbery at the Super 8 Motel on Brown Avenue.

Several hours pass, and then police said a fourth incident occurred around 6:19 a.m. at Uncle Bob's Superette on Kelley street.

The clerk who was working behind the counter said he is shaken and on edge.

"All of a sudden the guy came in - he had a parka on, he had a mask over his face - and he said this is a hold-up, open up both the cash drawers, I want your money," Darrell Simpson told NH1 News.

Simpson, who has worked as a clerk for about 20 years, said this wasn't the first time he was the victim of a robbery - and that he experienced a similar situation less than six months ago.

The robberies have changed his approach behind the counter.

"It's scary," he said. "It's to the point now that I've got my regular customers that come in. If I see somebody that I don't know, you watch 'em a little more carefully."
