A suspect caught on tape Monday during an attempted robbery and brutal assault at a car rental shop in Johnston appears to be the same individual wanted for an assault and attempted robbery at CT Plus Convenience Store in Woonsocket early Saturday morning.
At Best Car Rentals on Plainfield Street in Johnston, the man, who appears identical to the suspect sought in Woonsocket, was denied a rental car after showing the clerk a South Carolina license with a birth date in March of 1991.
The suspect then pulled out what appeared to be a gun and demanded the business owner's jewelry. The owner and his wife fought back, resulting in a two-minute long attack on the couple during which the suspect's "weapon," a plastic gun, broke, and he fled the scene.
The Woonsocket Police Department is seeking help in locating the man, who is estimated to be between 6'2 and 6'4 and 200 lbs.
