Cops: Elmwood Park robberies may be linked
Police believe two robberies, days apart, may have been committed by the same suspect.
The first robbery occurred last Friday night at the All Star Liquor and Deli where the suspect allegedly forced customers into a back room at gunpoint. Monday night, the Valero gas station on Route 46 West was held up at gunpoint.
Police believe the same suspect was caught on surveillance videos from both locations.
Residents of the area say they are not surprised about the attack. "This is a great store and it's sad somebody chose to stick them up," says John Carmichael, of Elmwood Park.
Police say no arrests have been made.
