    Police are looking for this woman in connection with the robbery of a Dunkin' Donuts in Plainville, and possibly one in Bristol.

    Plainville police are looking for the woman who threatened to kill a Dunkin’ Donuts employee in Plainville on Sunday night if she did not hand over cash, and they are also trying to determine if she is the same woman who tried to rob a Dunkin’ Donuts in Bristol just minutes earlier.

    A woman entered Dunkin’ Donuts at 19 East St. at 9:27 p.m. on Sunday, confronted the woman operating the register and ordered her to empty it if she valued her life, then threatened to kill the employee if she did not comply, police said.

    The employee opened the register and gave cash to the woman, who ran off.

    She did not display a weapon, but kept her hand in her coat pocket and the donut shop employee told police felt she might have had a weapon in the pocket, according to police.
     
    The woman has brown hair, a medium build and is in her 30s or 40s, according to police. She was wearing a white “puffy” short coat.

    Police are looking into whether the same woman tried to rob a Dunkin’ Donuts on Route 6 in Bristol just minutes before.

    At 9:16 p.m., police took a report from the shop at 855 Farmington Ave. reporting that a woman with a knife demanded money from the cashier, but the employee said, “No “ and walked away.

    That woman had dark hair and was wearing a hooded sweatshirt and winter cap. She was described as 30 to 40 years old, around 5-feet-6-inches tall and between 120 and 130 pounds.

    Anybody has any information should call Detective Marc Rivard or Sergeant Nicholas Mullins at 860-747-1616.
