    WAREHAM — Police are investigating two robberies from over the weekend in which a gas station attendant was tied with a telephone cord and another man was assaulted by a group of five individuals outside a Dunkin Donuts.
    Four Wareham men were arraigned Monday in Wareham District Court after the victim in a Friday night armed robbery identified them as the suspects who robbed him at knifepoint and assaulted him with a metal pipe.

    Arraigned on charges of armed robbery and assault with a dangerous weapon were: Kyle Pina, 18, of 157 Onset Ave.; Jonathan Depina, 19, of 50 Mayflower Lane; Courtney Turner, 20, of 298 Onset Ave.; and Eric Crumbley, 20, of 155 Onset Ave.

    On Friday, around 7:25 p.m., the victim told police a group of five men, whom he said were Cape Verdeans, confronted him in the parking lot outside the Dunkin Donuts at 197 Onset Ave. The man said one of the suspects brandished a knife and demanded his money, according to Wareham police spokesman Lt. Irving Wallace.

    The victim said he gave the suspects his money and went to his car. As he was entering his vehicle, one of the suspects hit him with a metal pipe, twice in the arm and once in the calf, Lt. Wallace said.

    The victim went to Tobey Hospital, where police officers were sent to question him. Lt. Wallace said police later found the four defendants in the area of Dunkin Donuts, and brought the victim to the scene to identify the suspects.

    Police are continuing their investigation, Lt. Wallace said.

    Meanwhile, police are also investigating an unarmed robbery at Maxi Gas at 2416 Cranberry Highway.

    Lt. Wallace said two men wearing hooded sweatshirts entered the gas station around 3:20 A.M. Sunday, knocked the station attendant to the ground and tied him up with a white telephone cord. The assailants then went through the victims’s pockets, stole an undisclosed amount of cash, and fled the scene on foot.

    Lt. Wallace said the station attendant had gone outside the station to pump gas for a woman minutes before the robbery. Police searched the area around the station, but did not find the suspects.

    Three of them live less than a mile away from the Dunkin Donuts. :ugh2:
