Police have charged a 29-year-old man in connection with three separate robberies in Regina over a 10-day span.
The first alleged robbery took place at a business on the 3400 block of Fifth Avenue around 12:20 p.m. on Dec. 12.
Police said a man entered the business, approached an employee and demanded cash before leaving.
Seven days later, officers were called to another robbery on the 6200 block of Rochdale Boulevard.
The victim told officers a man entered the business and asked the employee to call a cab. The man then allegedly took a knife out and demanded money and merchandise before fleeing.
On Dec. 20, police were called to a business on the 400 block of Albert Street North. Police said the man entered the business, approached an employee at the till, took out a knife and demanded money. The man left the store.
None of the workers were harmed during the robberies.
On the same day as the third incident, police said they found a man matching the description of the suspect.
Police arrested Craig Michael Papequash in the area of Eighth Avenue and Elphinstone Street.
As officers took him into custody, they learned about an assault with a weapon that had occurred to a cab driver who had the suspect in his vehicle. The driver did not sustain any physical injuries.
Papequash was charged Thursday with three counts of robbery and one count of assault with a weapon after which he made his first court appearance.
