On Thursday, Jonathan McKnight walked into Cumberland Farms [in Derry, NH] and filled out an employment application, police said.
The next day, police said, he came back to buy a pack of cigarettes. A half hour later, they allege, he returned again, robbing the convenience store with a steak knife and fondling a clerk whom he encountered the day before.
McKnight, 24, was being held on $100,000 cash bail yesterday after police tracked him down with help from the application he filled out. He faces felony charges of robbery and criminal threatening and a misdemeanor sexual assault charge.
That's almost as bad as the story of the bank robber that wrote a stickup note on one of his own deposit slips.
Let's hope that they stay this dumb.
