Manchester police: Suspect similar in robberies

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Police in Manchester, N.H., are investigating the robberies of a hotel and a gas station, both of which involved a masked man.

Police responded to the robbery at the Courtyard By Marriott, which happened late Monday. The desk clerk said she gave the man money.

At about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday, police responded to another robbery at the Irving Gas station. The clerk said a masked man armed with a silver handgun fled with money.

The suspect is described as a white male, 20-30- years old, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt over a dark colored ball cap, dark bandanna over his face, blue jeans, black backpack and white sneakers.

Police say the suspect resembles one described in robberies at a Rite Aid and a Sheraton Four Points Hotel.
