A man has been arrested and charged after robbing the same Subway restaurant twice in five days, D.C. police said.

Scotlund Thomas Haisley, 50, of no fixed address, was arrested and charged Saturday with two counts of robbery of an establishment.

Both robberies took place at the Subway located in the 4400 block of Connecticut Avenue, NW. The robberies took place on Jan. 20, around 6:37 p.m., and Jan. 24, around 8:50 p.m.

In surveillance video of both robberies, the suspect, wearing the same outfit with a ski mask on, can be seen approaching an employee and demanding money at the register behind the counter. In the first robbery, it appears the suspect holds and points what appears to be possibly a gun at the back of the employee’s neck.

Police said the suspect took off with approximately $300 in cash in the first robbery.

In both robberies, the suspect then fled the scene. At least in the case of the first robbery, he both arrived and left on the Metro. The nearest Metro station to the Subway restaurant location is Van Ness-UDC on the Red Line, which he appears to have taken at least when he left based on surveillance video.
