DÉJÀ VU: Mini-Mart Robbed Twice In One Week
Malden Mini-Market, robbed by a masked gunman only last Saturday, was again robbed by another masked man Tuesday night. Police continue to look for the suspect in both cases.
It's been a rough week for the Malden Mini Market.
The downtown convenience store at 539 Main St. was held up by two men around 3 p.m. Saturday, and – according to police transmissions – was robbed again just before 8 p.m. Tuesday night by a potentially armed, white-masked man.
No spokespeople from the Malden Police Department were immediately available to verify the reports Tuesday night, but the Malden Crime Watch Facebook Page reported hearing police describe the male suspect as 6' tall, wearing a white mask – or potentially a t-shirt pulled over their face – with a dark hoodie.
A man with a similar description – white male with a white mask, black hoodie and pants – reportedly demanded money from a tenant at King's Petroleum on Eastern Ave. shortly after the robbery at the Mini-Market.
Anyone with information about the case should call Malden Police at 781-397-7171.
