Second Robbery at Springfield’s ‘X’ Business

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Only hours after an armed robbery at Coconuts Bar and Grill on Dickinson Street in Springfield, another robbery happened a street away.

Police responded to a call just before 5:00 a.m. at Dunkin Donuts on Belmont Ave.  in the Forest Park neighborhood.

According to police, a hispanic male wearing a red shirt and blue jeans, about 30-years-old went into the restaurant implying that he had a weapon and demanded money from the cashier.

The man then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash on foot toward Dickinson Street.  Police are still investigating this but say no one was hurt and there is no reason to believe this incident is related to the one from Monday night at Coconuts.

There are no suspects at this time.
