Police release footage of gunman who robbed two massage parlors


The thefts took place at spas in Cambridge and Watertown two days apart.

Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a suspect in two recent armed robberies at massage parlors in Cambridge and Watertown.

Investigators say the suspect used a knife to break into the two spas just two days apart. The first theft took place at a spa in the 2300 block of Massachusetts Avenue in North Cambridge on May 14, just before 6 p.m., officials said.

Cambridge Police said in this robbery, the suspect entered the spa brandishing a knife and demanded money from the employees. A spa employee suffered minor stab wounds while confronting the suspect, police say.

Investigators say the man involved in the Cambridge incident “looks a lot like” the suspect who robbed another spa in Watertown on May 16 around 5pm. The police did not release the details of this theft.

Investigators posted surveillance photos and a video of the suspect, taken after the May 14 incident, on social media.

Police are asking for help identifying the man, who appears to be white and wearing a dark hat, dark jacket and khakis, but warned the man could be dangerous.

“If this suspect is encountered, do not attempt to interact with him (and) immediately call 911 when safe,” Cambridge Police said on Twitter.

Anyone with information about the suspect can contact Cambridge Police on 617-349-3300 or send a message beginning with “Tip650” to Cambridge Police on Tip411 (847411).
