‘Bag Bandit’ Suspected In Multiple Robberies In Niagara Falls – CBS New York
Police say a man seen wearing a plastic bag over his body, bags over his feet and a paper bag over his head attempted to rob three stores within a 24-hour period earlier this week.
Surveillance video shows him inside a 7-Eleven where he allegedly demanded money. Employees refused and he was chased out of the store.
“I can’t understand why somebody would be that desperate and risk going to prison for a long period of time for self gratification that they’re only gonna get for a short time,” Niagara Falls resident Howard Harrison said.
In the third robbery, at a gas station, police say the man was not wearing bags on his body or feet, but he did have a bag over his head.
The suspect allegedly demanded money and cigarettes, telling the clerk “I’m a crazy person” and “I’m sorry.”
