Arrest made in two Montgomery armed robberies

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A 33-year-old man is in police custody after police say they connected him to two recent armed robberies on Honeysuckle Road and the Sturbridge neighborhood of Montgomery.

David Brian Martin of Lamar Road faces four counts of first-degree robbery is being held at the Montgomery County Detention Facility on bonds totaling $420,000.

Police say Martin is responsible for the armed robbery of an elderly Honeysuckle Road resident on Oct. 25 and the holdup of two teens and their mother in the Sturbridge neighborhood on Oct. 6. 

In the October robbery, the 76-year-old woman was robbed at gunpoint and assaulted outside her home when she returned to her residence shortly after 11 p.m. In the November incident, two teenagers were robbed as they returned home and exited their vehicle at about 8:50 p.m. The armed suspect forced his way with the teenagers into the home, where he took property from the homeowner before fleeing.

MPD's investigation into the Nov. 6 robbery "quickly" identified Martin as a suspect, authorities said. He was in custody within 24 hours. It didn't take long for officers to connect the dots on the earlier case and additional charges were filed.

Montgomery Police Chief Kevin Murphy praised the work of police investigators and their commitment to seeking justice for the victims of crime. "At the end of the day, it's about driving down crime and keeping our community safe," Murphy said. 

MPD says the investigation is continuing, and no additional information is available.
