CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Two armed robberies in the city of Chicopee — less than six hours a part. Police say the same suspect may be responsible for both of them.
The first robbery occurred at the Basics Plus Mini Mart on East Street, at around 6:30 Sunday morning. The suspect flashed a handgun.
Chicopee Police Officer Mike Wilk told 22News the suspect, who was wearing a white mask and a hoodie, got away in a blue vehicle.
Surveillance video from outside of the Mini Mart shows the suspect getting out of his car without his mark on; moments later, after the robbery, they briskly walk back to the car and take off.
Another armed robbery occurred around noon, this time at the TD Bank on Meadow Street. The suspect matched the same description: a white mask and a hoodie, and that blue vehicle that police believe might be a newer Buick. The man again showed his gun and got away.
The suspect is between 5’5″ and 5’8″ tall.
