Friday police from Cambridge, Boston, Chelsea, Everett and Lynn issued a joint press release seeking the public’s help in identifying the man, who police said should be considered armed and dangerous.
“Luckily no one has been injured,” said Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert Haas in a statement. “We need the public’s help to identify and apprehend this suspect before these robberies turn violent.”
Cambridge Police said that the same man who robbed a convenience store in Everett Thursday is believed to have robbed a convenience store on Cambridge Street in Cambridge Monday night. Police said the man entered the store around 9:30 p.m. and lifted his shirt to display a firearm before demanding money and fleeing. The same man is also suspected of a robbery on Walden Street in Cambridge on July 27. Other robberies police could be tied to the same man have been in Chelsea, East Boston, Jamaica Plain and Lynn.
