Man arrested for armed robbery of Dorchester market

A man suspected of twice robbing a Dorchester convenience store was arrested following an investigation, Boston police said Friday.

Haitham Kheir, 42, of Dorchester, was charged with two counts of armed robbery of the Pleasant View Market following his arrest Thursday, police said in a statement.

He is due to be arraigned in the Dorchester division of Boston Municipal Court.

Detectives, who were surveilling the store after multiple reported robberies, saw Kheir walking up and down Pleasant Street near Savin Hill Avenue at 4:46 p.m., police said.

Kheir entered the store and allegedly reached over the counter and into the cash register and knocked over several displays, the statement said.


Kheir was taken into custody, and detectives removed a “sizable kitchen-style knife” and cash from him, the statement said.

After further investigation, Kheir was charged with a second count of armed robbery for a Jan. 28 theft at the store, police said.
