MANCHESTER –– A city resident was arrested in connection with two robberies committed in one day, according to Manchester Police.

Farah Ibrahim, 28, of Manchester, was arrested Tuesday night and charged with two counts of robbery.

On October 23, Manchester Police responded to a reported robbery at Seven Days Market on 360 Union Street around 10:30 p.m.

The caller informed the police that a man on a bicycle had approached him outside the market, brandishing large hedge clippers and demanding his wallet.
