Nathan Parker, 22, of Peter Boulevard, was captured on Campus Avenue at about 5 p.m. after tips led police to his location. He was charged with robbery. The arrest ended a long search that started Wednesday night when the suspect led police on a foot chase before disappearing into the woods around Garcelon Bog. Police said Parker walked into Tim Hortons at about 8:15 p.m. Wednesday and ordered coffee and a doughnut before robbing the clerk. Witnesses said the suspect showed the clerk a note in which he threatened to kill her if she did not hand over cash from the register. Parker fled on foot, but almost from the beginning, police knew who they were looking for. His image, investigators said, was captured by Tim Hortons’ security system.
