ROCHESTER -- Cumberland Farms was robbed late Sunday night by a man wielding a knife and police believe he could be the same individual who robbed two other stores earlier this month.

The robbery happened at 11:43 p.m. at the 2 Highland St. store in East Rochester. A male clerk was alone in the store when a man, armed with a knife approached the register and demanded money.

The clerk handed over the money and the robber fled out the door headed to Main Street.

Police said the incident left the clerk shaken, but uninjured.

A K-9 team arrived on scene, but the dog was unable to track down the robber.

The robber's description is similar to the man who robbed the Shell station on Milton Road on July 6 and the Irving Circle K on Gonic Road on July 20.

He is a white male, about 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-8, with a thin build. He wore a black Under Armor hooded sweatshirt, had a dark bandanna or mask covering most of his face, blue jeans and black sneakers.

He had a leather utility, work style glove on his left hand and carried a knife with a black blade in his right hand.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Detective Michael Mundy at 330-7106 or Rochester Crimeline at 335-6500. Text messages may also be sent to Rochester Crimeline at Crimes (274637); in the body write TEXT4CASH followed by the tip.
