Baltimore Police say a 30-year-old man robbed a Hampden 7-Eleven store two mornings in a row around the exact same time each day.

On September 22, officers were called to the 7-Eleven located at the corner of West 33rd Street and Keswick Road for reports of an armed robbery just after 6:15 a.m.

An employee told police an unknown male suspect entered the store and pulled out a knife threatening the employee and demanding money. The suspect got away with an unknown amount of money and cigarettes.  The employee was not injured, police said.

On September 23 at approximately 5:45 a.m., officers were called back to the same 7-Eleven for another report of an armed robbery.

An employee told detectives the store had just been robbed by the same suspect who robbed them on the 22nd.

During this incident, the suspect pulled a knife on the employee and demanded more money.  The employee complied and the suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.

Later in the day, officers received a call that the robbery suspect was in the area of West 36th Street and Falls Road.  Police responded to the area and saw a man matching the suspect's description.

After an investigation, 30-year-old Brian Brown was identified as the suspect responsible for both robberies, police said.

Brown was charged with several counts of robbery, theft, and assault charges.

He is currently being held at the Baltimore City Central Booking and Intake facility.
