Robber flashes butcher knife at Haverhill store owner

Posted: Updated:
HAVERHILL, Mass. (WHDH) - A robber launched over the counter and flashed a big knife at store owner Yatin Patel.

Patel said this was the third time he had been robbed in six months and he will not let his wife work there after she faced a robber with a gun on Christmas Eve.

In January, Yatin said he was robbed by a man with a knife like this last one. He said this robber talked like he meant business.

Patel said the man told him to "give me the money or I'll kill you."

Patel upgraded his security cameras since the last robbery, and the footage showed a Celtics name and logo on the robber's black coat.

Police hope the video produces leads to help catch the crook.

"It's getting rough. Because three months apart, three robberies, that's kind of scary," Patel said.

Anyone with information should contact Haverhill police at 978-373-1212.
