QUINCY, Mass. — Police are looking for two suspects who robbed a Dunkin’ Donuts early Friday morning, after they struck and kicked two employees, and threatened them with a handgun. They also stole one of the employees’ car, our news partners at the Patriot Ledger reported.

Capt. John Dougan said the robbery occurred about 3:30 a.m. at the Dunkin’ Donuts at 687 Hanock St. in the Wollaston neighborhood.

Dougan said the store’s assistant manager told police she’d just arrived for work and was sitting in her parked Ford Escort, waiting for another employee to let her in, when she saw someone waving at the side door.

When she stepped inside, “an unknown male” grabbed her from behind, threw her to the floor, brandished a handgun and demanded that she open the store safe. When she said she couldn’t open the safe, he struck her in the head.

The other employee, a male, told police that a second man assaulted him from behind the same way. The second man kicked him when he said he couldn’t open the safe.

Both employees told the assailants there was money in the register drawers. The two men dragged both to the store’s freezer area, took the cash and left.

The assistant manager said she waited five minutes before she called police, to be sure the robbers were gone. She then saw that they’d stolen her car.

Dougan said he didn’t know whether the employees were treated at the scene for their injuries or taken to the hospital. He said it’s not clear whether the suspects broke in, or surprised the second employee when he arrived for work.

Dougan said the suspects were both described as black males dressed in black and wearing ski masks. One was 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, and of stocky build. The other suspect is 5 feet 6 to 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 160.

The stolen car is a 1999 white Escort, with the license plate 25BK85. Anyone with information about the robbery or the car is urged to contact detectives at 617-479-1212.

Canton MA – A man suspected of being the serial robber who had targeted Dunkin Donuts stores in Eastern Massachusetts is in custody, Canton Police said.

During the summer, Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants were robbed at gunpoint in Canton, Newton, West Roxbury, Westwood, Norwood, Walpole, Plainville, Norton, North Attleboro, Raynham and Easton,

The robberies then spread north to communities including Burlington.

“Evidence linking the suspect to many of the affected locations was uncovered” during a search of Murphy’s home, police said.

Dunkin’ Brands and police in nearly a dozen towns had offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.

Canton police released a surveillance photo in an effort to catch the robber.

Murphy is scheduled to be arraigned in Stoughton District Court Wednesday.
