Augusta Police Arrest Suspect In Two Robberies
Augusta Police have arrested a suspect in the Subway Restaurant robbery after he allegedly robbed a Circle K.
Deputy Chief Kevin Lully said in a media release that police responded to the report of a robbery at the Circle K on Eastern Avenue just before 8:30 on Wednesday. The suspect had demanded money and fled the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. No one was injured in the incident. Based on witness statements and evidence, police believed the suspect may have been the same man who robbed the Subway Restaurant on Bangor Street the day before.
Officers canvassed the area, including a State Police K-9, and tracked 27-year-old Christopher Williams to a local residence. He was taken into custody without incident and charged with two counts of Robbery and two counts of Violation of Conditions of Release.
