All of the alleged robberies occurred on Route 10 in Roxbury, New Jersey.
The 23-year-old suspect, who lives in the Succasunna section of Roxbury Township, allegedly walked into the Harmon Discount Store on Route 10 last March. Once inside the store, the suspect allegedly handed the cashier a note which demanded money.
When the cashier refused to hand over any cash to the suspect, the suspect reportedly ran out of the store and fled the scene on foot.
A few days later, the suspect allegedly rode his bicycle to the Fuel 10 gas station on Route 10. The suspect then allegedly brandished a knife and tried to get cash from the gas station attendant.
When the suspect was unable to gain access to the attendant’s booth at the station, he reportedly hopped back onto his bike and fled the scene.
The next day, the suspect allegedly walked into a Wells Fargo Bank located on Route 10 and handed the teller a note demanding money. According to police, the note also indicated that the suspect was armed.
