Authorities state that the same individual previously robbed a convenience store in the 1700 block of Columbia Road Northwest last Thursday morning, using a fire extinguisher to assault employees and steal the cash register. 

Surveillance footage from a robbery the previous Wednesday morning at a convenience store in the 5200 block of 3rd Street Northeast shows the suspect without a mask, as well.
