Name was same - almost - for heist suspect

SHARE Name was same - almost - for heist suspect

You've heard the stereotype about cops and doughnuts.

Here's a twist: Two cops staked out a Dunkin' Donuts shop in hopes of catching a man who's robbed several such stores. They witnessed a robbery, nabbed the suspect and found out his last name is Duncan.On the police sheet, they at first spelled it Dunkin.

"It's a little strange," said Sgt. Randall Bush of the Manhattan Robbery Squad.

Duncan, 24, allegedly hit eight Manhattan Dunkin' Donuts before his arrest this week. His alleged method was to enter a shop, order food and when the cash register opened, punch the victim, grab money and run.

In Tuesday's robbery, police said, Duncan had an accomplice: 43-year-old Howard Johnson.
