WATCH: Man With Pistol Robs Highland Avenue Convenience Store
The suspect is also wanted for allegedly robbing three convenience stores in Medford.
Somerville police released surveillance video of a suspect who robbed the Somerville QuickStop Convenience Store, at 219 Highland Ave., at gunpoint.
In the video you can see the suspect pull out a pistol and threaten the store's clerk with it while the robber helps himself to about $1,000 in cash from the register and money box.
The robbery happened Sunday night, and police believe the suspect is the same man who robbed three stores in Medford.
Here's the announcement from Somerville police:
