Police are looking for two suspects in a pattern of gunpoint robberies throughout Brownsville, East New York and Bushwick that occurred in the first week of the new year.

MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) – A Brentwood, New Hampshire man is facing several charges after police said he started a multi-town crime spree by crashing a stolen car Tuesday morning before carjacking a mother and daughter from another car in Manchester.
Anthony Plourde, 22, is accused of stealing a car from a woman on Flaherty Lane around 9:15 a.m. as she was warming it up outside her house. The woman, 74-year-old Doreen Betts, told police he was wielding a wooden stake.
“I was in the gate, 2 feet, when this idiot flies around the corner, running like the dickens, flung the shovel in the parking area, jumped into my car, shoved it into reverse, shot off and off he went,” said Betts. She said she is now taking personal safety into her own hands and told 7News she is keeping a World War I bayonet with her at home.
It wasn’t the doorbuster the North Face store at the Brookfield Square Mall was hoping for. Crews have already boarded up the front entrance with plywood after Brookfield Police responded around 11:45 p.m. on Wednesday, November 22nd.

A few hours later, around 3:15 a.m. on Thursday, November 23rd, police responded to the 7-Eleven on Capitol Drive just west of Barker Road. More smashed glass and a break-in. A store representative was still surveying damage hours later.
Meanwhile, back at Brookfield Square, a spokesperson told 12-News that the incident at North Face was isolated and didn’t affect the rest of the mall.
Police have not told us whether the incidents were related nor how much was stolen.

Marvin then got into a car and tried to steal the vehicle from
