The third time was seemingly not the charm for a London man accused of holding up a gas bar and a convenience store this past weekend.
London Police said the first incident took place on Friday night around 10:30p.m. when a male suspect took out a knife and demanded cash and cigarettes from the clerk at the variety store at 150 Emery Street West.
Then on Saturday night at around 11:30p.m., a suspect held up the gas bar at 299 Wharncliffe Road South.
Police have said he had a knife and again asked for cigarettes and cash.
It wasn’t long before Police say the suspect surfaced again, this time at a familiar location: the same variety store on Emery.
According to investigators, the suspect showed up there on Sunday night around 7p.m.
The employee recognized the man and called police. The suspect was arrested at the scene.
As a result of the investigation, London Police say a 33-year-old London man faces 7 charges in connection with the three hold-ups.
No one was hurt in any of the incidents.
