On Friday and Saturday on Dorchester Boulevard in Hanover a pair of businesses were robbed at knifepoint, with an unknown male suspect escaping, police said.

On Monday, Anne Arundel County police arrested Nicholas Daniel Pearson, 23, of Hanover and charged him with both robberies and related offenses, police announced Tuesday.

Officers responded to a robbery at the Subway restaurant Friday morning in the 7600 block of Dorchester Boulevard. Police said Pearson entered the store, displayed a knife and demanded money from the register.

The employee gave him money and Pearson fled toward Dorchester Boulevard, police said. Officers searched the area but did not find him. No injuries were reported as a result of this incident.

The next morning, officers responded to a robbery at the Starbucks in the 7600 block of Dorchester. Pearson again displayed a knife and demanded money from the register, police said. He fled and police were unable to find him.

After investigating the incidents, police determined that the suspect was Pearson and arrested him for both robberies, police said in a news release.
