Witness helps WPD nab alleged Walgreens robber
At 2:15 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 3, Worcester Police responded to Walgreens, 220 Grafton St., for a report of an unarmed robbery. A man had stolen the cash register and walked away. A witness followed the suspect, who hid behind a wall on Barclay Street while counting the money.
The suspect, Neksone Allah-Digui, 22, of 155 Lincoln St., Worcester, refused officers’ orders to show them his hands. When officers went to place him under arrest, he began to struggle. After escaping their grip, Allah-Digui faced officers in a fighting stance.
