Officers said the male suspect committed two armed robberies in Woonsocket. The first case happened last Sunday, March 8th around 7am.

According to detectives, a white suspect entered the Gulf Express Gas Station on Park Avenue.  He then implies he had a weapon and demanded money from the clerk.

He is described as tall with a husky build and appears to be wearing blue jacket with tape or a sticker covering a breast emblem.
