Henderson, NV (KTNV) -- A 42-year-old Henderson man was arrested on Friday, in connection with four retail and convenience store robberies.

Police said the suspect attempted to rob a Henderson Target at about 2 p.m., but fled when confronted by loss prevention staff.

He was followed to Palm Villas apartments at 650 Whitney Ranch Drive by an off-duty Las Vegas police officer, who called police.

Henderson patrol officers responded and established a perimeter before taking Brandon Sprout into custody. A search warrant was served and detectives found evidence that links Sprout to four open robberies between Dec. 13 and Jan. 3.

In each of the robberies, the suspect approached an employee, demanded cash from the register and threatened them with a knife.

In two instances, the employee complied with the suspect's demand and gave him an undisclosed amount of cash. In the other two instances, the suspect left empty-handed.

No one was injured during any of the robberies.

The suspect is also accused of robbing Metro Pizza on Dec. 13, Rebel Oil on Dec. 21, Target on Dec. 27 and Walgreens on Jan. 3.
