Worcester Man Arrested for Robbing Same Subway Store 3 Times 1

WORCESTER – A 24-year-old Worcester man was arrested on Saturday evening after being identified as the suspect in three robberies of the same Subway fast-food restaurant.

According to the Worcester Police Department [WPD], William Walley, of 56 Providence St. robbed the Subway store at 281 Shrewsbury St at knifepoint on three different occassions this winter — Jan. 15, Jan. 19, and Feb. 3.

In each robbery, witnesses identified a tall, masked male. Walley entered the store with a large kitchen knife and demanded money from the register. An investigation would reveal that the same male — Walley — was responsible for each robbery.

Detectives identified the suspect as Walley, and officers located Walley on Wilson St and placed him under arrest. He is charged with three counts of Armed Robbery while Masked, and will be arraigned in Worcester District Court.
