Sgt. John M. Delaney, aide to Police Commissioner William J. Fitchet, said police responded to Bridal Path Road at 9:35 p.m. Thursday after three teens said they were robbed at knife point by a white male in his 20s. The teens told the man they only had $1 and the suspect ran towards Allen Street with the money.
Officer Obed Almeyda, who interviewed the victims, spotted the suspect in the parking lot of the Quality Mart at 1360 Allen St. Almeyda detained Doyle and found a knife and $1 in his pocket.
While Doyle was being arrested police received a call about an attempted robbery at the Hampden Bank ATM machine at 1363 Allen St. The victim told police a man walked up to his car, said he had a gun and demanded money. The 46-year-old victim sped off and called police.
The victim gave police a detailed description of the man and it was confirmed that it was Doyle.
Doyle is being charged with armed robbery and armed assault with intent to rob. Doyle was arraigned in Springfield District Court on Monday. Bail has been set at $10,000 in cash. He will return to District Court on July 16 for a pre-trial hearing.
