Police: Armed man robbed two Dunkin' stores back to back on same highwayPosted: Updated:
Police in Bergen County are looking for the armed man they say robbed two Dunkin' stores just 15 minutes apart from one another.
The first robbery happened Wednesday at 12:33 a.m. on Route 17 in Ramsey, and then again at 12:47 a.m. – again on Route 17, in Paramus.
According to Ramsey police, the armed man forced an employee to open the cash register and tried to have a safe opened.
Police say he was wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt, face mask and sunglasses.
About 15 minutes later, Paramus police say a man pulled out a gun and forced an employee at that Dunkin’ to open the cash register, before leaving.
Police believe the two armed robberies are connected.
Both police departments described the suspect as a short Asian man, possibly in his 20s.
