Anchorage police have arrested a 38-year-old man suspected of two armed robberies.


Police say John Moore also is charged with assault and theft.


A man wearing a bucket hat Thursday walked into a Northway Mall grocery and stole meat costing hundreds of dollars.


When security officers confronted him, the suspect brandished a gun and drove off with the meat.


On Friday, the same man entered a JC Penney store, took clothing and left without paying. The suspect again brandished a handgun and fled in a maroon car.


Police on Saturday arrested Moore, wearing a bucket hat, as he rode a bike on Fifth Avenue near Merrill Field. Police say he was carrying a pellet gun that looks like a firearm.


Online court records do not list an attorney for Moore. A magistrate judge ordered him to be held in jail under a $15,000 bail with an additional requirement for a third-party custodian.
