SCPD on the Lookout for Suspect Responsible for More Than a Dozen Robberies

Local News, Crime

More than half of the places struck were Subways.

The Suffolk County Police Pattern Crime Unit is on the lookout for a suspect who may be behind more than a dozen robberies in the past month. Each incident took place between 7 p.m. and midnight. The possibly Hispanic suspect has been described as either 5 foot 6 inches or 5 foot 10 inches.
 
During the robberies he wore a hooded sweatshirt, dark-colored scarf, and mask. He is always armed with his handgun and after stealing the money from the register, he runs off on foot.
 
The SCPD says Six Subways were hit since the robberies began. His first three targets, taking place between December 9th and 15th, all happened in Medford. During these three robberies two Subways and a Hess station were hit. For the rest of December, the suspect robbed only gas stations and Subways. While he usually robbed Hess gas stations last month, on Christmas he hit a Sunoco on Route 112 in Coram.
 
The suspect started the New Year with new locations. On New Year’s Day he robbed a Carvel in Center Moriches, and the next night he made his way to Shirley to rob a Royal Market. On January 3rd he struck two locations. The first was a 7-Eleven in Medford, and the next was another Subway in Nesconset.
 
His final two robberies happened on January 5th and January 7th. On the 5th the suspect hit his final Subway in Ronkonkoma, and on the 7th he struck a Mobil on the Run on Sunrise Highway in Islip Terrace.
 
There have been no reported injuries during the fourteen robberies. Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to call anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will remain confidential.
