Ronald Joncas, who is 56 years old, was arrested Tuesday after armed robberies on Sunday and Tuesday morning, Fall River police said in a news release.

Officers responded to a report of an armed robbery at around 1 p.m. Tuesday near the corner of Oak Street and Bank Street, where someone told them a man flashed a knife and demanded money as the victim tried to get into his car, according to the release.
