Police are looking for a suspect in the armed robbery of a South End bakery Tuesday afternoon. According to published reports, the robber walked into Carmen’s Bakery on Rivet Street, showed the clerk a handgun in his waistband and demanded cash.  The suspect was described as about 20 years old and was last seen running east on Rivet.  No one was hurt.

Meanwhile, two men armed with knives and a pit bull broke into a Phillips Avenue apartment Tuesday night and robbed the tenants. Detective Capt. Steven Vicente says both suspects were armed with knives and one also had a pit bull on a leash that he used as a weapon.

The dog bit a 45-year-old tenant on the leg during the robbery, the men broke into the apartment at 149 Phillips Ave. at around 7:30 p.m. and fled with cash. The suspects are described as white males, about 30 years old, with heavy builds.
