PATERSON, NJ -For almost two weeks, Paterson police had been looking for 23-year-old Timothy Simmons in connection with a string of armed robberies committed at city groceries and liquor stores early this month.

They found him early Monday morning while looking for the suspect in an armed robbery that happened at the Power Gas station at 195 21st Avenue at 12:02 am, said Lt. Richard Reyes.

While on patrol, Police Officer Muhammed Karasekreter spotted someone who matched the description of the Power Gas robbery suspect running near the corner of Pearl and Summer streets, Reyes said.

Karasekreter tried to stop the man, who was Simmons, but the suspect assaulted the officer and continued to flee, Reyes said. Karasekreter caught Simmons several blocks away, on Ellison Street, police said.

Det. Jimmy Maldonado and Sgt. Bert Ribeiro later identified Simmons, a resident of Angela Place, as a susppect in six previous robberies, Reyes said.
