Police are investigating two seperate armed robberies that occurred in Newton on Wednesday.
A woman told police she has just been to the Bank of America in Newton Centre at about 4:15 p.m. and walked along a path between Herrick Road and a parking lot.
"When she was near the lot a male came up from behind her and wrapped his 'white, muscular' right arm around her neck and put a straight edge knife to her neck with the blade touching her skin," according to the police report.
The man told her in a Boston accent, "Here's what's going to happen. You're going to go into your purse and take out your wallet and give me any money you have." And when she took out her wallet the man said "Don't try anything funny."
He also took a gold necklace from her neck, and before leaving he put the point of the knife on her back and said she should close her eyes and count to 10.
Later that day, Newton Police received a panic alarm from the Dunkin Donuts at 163 Needham St., and then police got a call from the store saying they had just been robbed, according to police.
The suspect reportedly entered through the back door and pointed a gun at the employees.
"He told them if they 'call the police he would shoot them,'" according to police.
The man took money out of the register and out of a box next to the register, and then left the store.
The suspect was described as 5-foot-6, approximately 160 pounds and was wearing a sweatshirt and pants.
