On Tuesday February 21, 2017 at approx 9:12pm, Quincy Police Officers were dispatched to Prestige Gas, located at 9 Franklin St., Quincy for a report of an armed robbery. On arrival officers were met by the cashier. The male cashier stated he was walking in the store from outside when a black male who was masked grabbed him and forced him, at gunpoint, to the floor in the rear of the store. The cashier stated to officers that the suspect held a black pistol to his head and held him on the ground. The cashier then stated there was another masked black male suspect who was watching the front store door. The armed suspect then demanded the cashier to turn over the store keys. The suspects then observed customers approaching the front door and both fled the store on foot to an awaiting vehicle described as a dark color SUV with a partial MA plate 42K. The vehicle and the suspects then fled on Franklin St. towards School St.
This incident is very similar to an armed robbery that occurred at Prime Gas, 596 Hancock St, Quincy on January 31, 2017.
