A 7-Eleven in Fall River has been robbed 3-times, in 4-days.
Police aren't sure if the same man is responsible for all the robberies, but the clerk who was robbed first, says that it is.
Ricardo Gould says that every time he goes into work at the 7-Eleven, he thinks about what he'd do, if he got robbed.
On Tuesday at 3 in the morning, he found out, when he was confronted by a robber, who had a knife.
"I seen a guy standing at the door and I seen that he had like a sweater around his face. Once I seen that I already knew I was getting robbed." said Gould.
It was at that moment that Ricardo's instincts kicked in, and before he knew it, he was racing towards the door.
"Maybe he was like a foot, 2-feet away from me, and he pulled out a knife. Once I seen the big knife, I was just like whoa, and my first thought, was to see if I could run out."
Ricardo ran right past the robber and into the street.
Meanwhile the masked robber jumped behind the counter and took what he came for.
"He took the whole register with him and ran down the street."
Since Tuesday morning, Ricardo's store has been robbed 2-more times. Each time by a similar looking robber, who was wearing either a bandana or a mask, to cover his face.
Although Fall River Police aren't positive it's the same robber, Ricardo believes that each robbery was committed by the same man.
Ricardo will be working into the early morning again soon.
And unless the robber or robbers are caught by then, Ricardo is worried that he might be robbed again.
"I gotta be here Sunday night and who knows what could happen, you know? But there's not much I can do, I can't prevent it." said Gould.
