Police search for a man linked to four robberies

Posted: Updated:

Police are searching for a man they believe is connected to a string of four robberies in New Haven.

On Saturday, a man went to a Pizza Hut restaurant on Whalley Avenue and threatened a clerk while brandishing a knife. The man took about $30 to $40 in cash.

The man is also the suspect in the robbery of a Dunkin' Donuts on Ferry Street where a clerk was threatened at knife point Friday.

Police believe that the same man robbed a Subway restaurant on Grand Avenue on Wednesday, and a 7-Eleven convenience store on Whalley Avenue on Jan. 3. The man used a syringe to threaten the clerks at both establishments.

The man is described as a white male between 5'8" and 5'10' and weighs approximate 200 to 220 pounds.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call New Haven Police.
