The suspect, who should be considered armed and dangerous, is described as a male, likely in his 20s to 30s.  In each holdup, the suspect wore dark clothing and a face covering.  The suspect appeared to be armed and, in some of the robberies, he walked with a distinctive limp.

 

On August 30, 2018, at approximately 8:14 p.m., the suspect, wearing a black mask, sunglasses, and dressed in dark clothing, entered the Mobil Gas Station, 264 Neponset Valley Parkway, Hyde Park, Massachusetts.  Upon entering the store, the suspect brandished a black and silver colored handgun. He approached the cashier and demanded money from the cash register.

 

On September 25, 2018, at approximately 8:43 p.m., the suspect, wearing a gray mask, sunglasses, and dressed in dark clothing, again entered the Mobil Gas Station, 264 Neponset Valley Parkway, Hyde Park, Massachusetts.  Upon entering the store, the suspect brandished a black handgun.  He approached the cashier and demanded money, while claiming he had “child support to pay.”

 

On October 5, 2018, at approximately 9:26 p.m., the suspect, wearing a black mask, dark pants, and a jacket with a white logo on the left side, entered a Mobil Gas Station, 2776 Washington Street, Canton, Massachusetts.  Upon entering the store, the suspect brandished a black colored handgun.  He approached the cashier, demanded money, and allegedly “racked” the slide on the firearm.

 

On the same day, at approximately 10:10 p.m., the suspect, wearing the same clothing, followed a cashier into the Mobil Gas Station/Dunkin’ at 372 Washington Street in Stoughton, Massachusetts.  He demanded money and threatened to shoot the cashier.  No firearm was brandished, but the cashier believed he possessed one.  A clicking sound was heard while the suspect’s hands were inside his jacket pockets.

 

Two days later, on October 7, 2018, at approximately 7:17 a.m., the suspect, wearing a black mask and dressed in dark clothing, entered Prime Gas Station, 304 Union Street in Randolph, Massachusetts, and brandished a dark-colored handgun before approaching the cashier and demanding money.  A white logo was observed on the left side of the suspect’s jacket.

 

The following day, on October 8, 2018, at approximately 7:32 p.m., the suspect, wearing a black mask and dressed in dark clothing, entered Rogers Service Gas Station, 197 Neponset Valley Parkway, Hyde Park, Massachusetts, while brandishing a black and silver handgun.  He demanded money from the cashier, but fled the scene without any cash.  A white logo was seen on the left side of the suspect’s jacket.

 

On November 5, 2018, at approximately 6:18 p.m., the suspect, wearing a black mask or scarf and dressed in dark clothing, approached an attendant at the TNT Gas Station, 1150 North Main Street, Randolph, Massachusetts.  He demanded money and threatened to shoot the attendant.  Although no firearm was observed, the attendant heard a noise believed to be the hammer of a firearm being pulled back in the suspect’s pockets.

 

On January 18, 2019, at approximately 8:20 p.m., the suspect, wearing a black bandana on his face and dark clothing, entered W&G Express Gas Station, 753 American Legion Highway, Roslindale, Massachusetts.  The suspect brandished a black handgun and verbally demanded money from the cashier, stating he needed diapers.

 

On March 29, 2019, at approximately 6:46 a.m., the suspect, wearing a black mask and dressed in a black parka with fur around the collar and dark clothing, entered Mobil Gas Station, 264 Neponset Valley Parkway, Hyde Park, Massachusetts.  Upon entering the store, the suspect brandished a black handgun and verbally demanded money from the cashier, but fled the store without any cash.  It was noted that the suspect walked with a distinctive limp.
