String of Robberies Continuing in Binghamton
Binghamton police are investigating another in a series of store robberies in the city.
The latest reported heist happened around 2 p.m. Monday at Alaska Quick Mart on the North Side.
A knife-wielding man whose face was concealed by a mask reportedly robbed the small neighborhood convenience store at 254 Chenango Street.
The suspect is said to have fled the business with some money and cigarettes.
Binghamton police detectives have been trying to find the man who they believe is responsible for a wave of robberies in the city over the last few weeks.
Police believe the man who was involved in the latest incident is linked to many if not most of the other robberies they've been investigating.
One week ago, a man with a knife got away with more than $700 from the Jay's One Stop Store at 77 Main Street in an early-morning heist.
Several other robberies have been reported to Binghamton police involving a suspect who operated in a similar fashion. Some of the incidents have not been made public as detectives continue to search for the suspect.
No injuries have been reported during the string of robberies but police officials privately have said they are concerned because the suspect appears to be getting more brazen. They are worried that if the bandit isn't taken off the streets soon, someone may be hurt.
