A man accused of multiple attempted armed robberies in northern New Jersey has been arrested, according to officials.
The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office says Husem Nasri, 24, tried to rob gas stations in Hasbrouck Heights and Clifton and successfully robbed a grocery store in Paterson. All of these incidents happened on Feb. 5, according to officials.
In the Clifton incident, Nasri allegedly struck the gas station attendant with a gun. The attendant was able to fight him off with a squeegee, according to surveillance video obtained by News 12.
Officials say that after trying to rob the two gas stations, Nasri went to a grocery store on North Third Street in Paterson where he threatened to kill employees with a gun. He then stole about $400, according to officials.
Nasri was arrested Tuesday in Alexandria, Virginia. He is now facing armed robbery and weapons charges and is being held in Virginia pending extradition to New Jersey.
