PORTLAND, Maine — A Portland man arrested on robbery charges Monday afternoon allegedly told Dunkin Donuts employees he had a gun, but fled the scene without taking any money.

Zachary Tuttle, 22, was charged with robbery for an incident that allegedly occurred at the One City Center Dunkin Donuts just before 6 p.m. Sunday.

According to a Portland Police Department announcement Monday, Tuttle was located by officers on Cumberland Avenue and arrested at around 1 p.m. Monday afternoon after allegedly being identified from surveillance video from the fast food restaurant.

“[Tuttle] demanded all of the money in the register, telling the clerk he had a gun, although no gun was displayed,” the department announcement reads, in part. “The suspect’s face was partially covered by sunglasses and clothing.”

The employee working at the time then moved to what the police described as “the office area,” and the suspect fled while the clerk was out of the room — and before any money changed hands. No customers were in the store at the time of the incident, the police reported, and no one was injured.
