WASHINGTON (WMAR) — A man is in custody after pepper spraying employees and robbing three Prince George's County businesses within a week.

Prince George's County Police say 30-year-old Lorenzo Jordan and his alleged accomplice, Danielle Vallier, 31, were arrested Wednesday in Washington D.C.

Jordan is last accused of a December 10 robbery at a convenience store in the 700 block of Harry S. Truman Drive in Largo.

An investigation found that Jordan entered the store, maced an employee, and then took off with stolen cash.

The day before Jordan struck again, when he allegedly pepper sprayed a clerk during a robbery at an office supply store in the 7000 block of Annapolis Road in Lanham.

Then four days earlier on December 5, Jordan targeted yet another business, this time in the 3000 block of Queens Chapel Road in Mount Rainier, where he once again pepper sprayed a worker.

Following his arrest, police say Jordan not only confessed to the three robberies, but also a similar one that occurred in Anne Arundel County.

Police believe Vallier drove Jordan to all the robberies.

Both are awaiting extradition from D.C. to Prince George's County.
