    A man who police believe may have been involved in several armed robberies this week in Massachusetts is being held on $3,000 bail.

    Police say a man wearing a dark red hooded sweatshirt with a black vest over it entered Gris Market on Second Street in Framingham, Massachusetts and showed a gun to the clerk Wednesday.

    The owner put up a fight and chased the man out of the store.

    A police detective near the scene arrested the suspect, who has since been identified as Darius Banks, around 8 p.m.

    Banks is believed to have been involved in another armed robbery at El Picante Convenience Store on Union Avenue Wednesday morning. An armed robbery suspect in Natick was also wearing similar clothing.

    Police also have surveillance video of a suspect wearing a similar sweatshirt and vest Tuesday at the Speedway Gas Station on Route 9 Eastbound near the Oak Street intersection.

    Banks was arraigned Thursday. If he posts bail he will be on home confinement with a GPS bracelet to January 20.
