OVERNIGHT: Crime Spree Hits Green Bay

Police say two armed robberies and a burglary might be connected.
GREEN BAY, Wisc. (WFRV) Police say two armed robberies and a burglary might be connected.

The crime spree began just before 7pm Sunday at the Express Convenience Store in the 1500 block of East Mason Street. A man entered the store, displayed a weapon and demanded cash. It's unknown how much he got away with.

Three hours later, at 11pm, a second armed robbery took place at another Express Convenience Store in the 1800 block of South Ashland Avenue. An undisclosed amount of cash was taken in that heist.

Then earlier this morning, just before 2:30am, a burglary happened on South Webster Avenue at the El Ranchito Mexican Market. The business was closed at the time.

The description of the crook in all three cases is the same: a skinny white male, 6 feet tall, with a shaved head.

Police were initially talking to a "person of interest" in the case who matched the description. The 30-year-old male was arrested as a suspect. While being transported to the Brown County Jail, the man kicked the rear door window out of the squad. He dove head first out the window and took off. Police and the K9 unit were able to find the man in a nearby woods.

The suspect is now in jail, being held on charges of burglary, escape, obstructing an officer and criminal damage.
