Police Look for Suspect in Two Robberies in East Haven

Police are investigating after two businesses on the same street in East Haven were apparently robbed by the same person.

Both robberies occurred on East Frontage Road, according to police.

The first robbery happened at a Sunoco gas station shortly after 10:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Police said the suspect, approximately 6-feet-tall, was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a white logo over the left breast, gray or tan jeans and black shoes. The man was carrying a knife.

Police said the man jumped over the counter and gained access to the cash register. He then fled the scene in a newer model dark gray or charcoal Honda Civic with tinted windows.

A second robbery happened at Dunkin' Donuts just after 10:30 a.m. on Sunday.

Police said a white or Hispanic male entered the business with a knife. 

The man reached over the counter and took cash. The description of the suspect matched the description of the Sunoco robbery suspect, police said.

No injuries were reported in either robbery.

Anyone who recognizes the pictured suspect is urged to contact police.
