The suspect displayed a note and a black object underneath a bag to the victim, and demanded money from the register. The suspect got away with some money.

Later that same day, at 11:50 p.m., the suspect entered a Jamaican restaurant at 1450 Fulton Street.

He asked the victim for directions to a location on a paper, and held up a paper demanding money or saying he would shoot. The suspect fled on foot with money and a juice bottle.

The victim opened the register and gave the suspect money. He fled on foot.

The next day on August 6th at 7:30 a.m. the suspect entered a Burger King at 957 Marcy Avenue.
