Tuscaloosa police officers charged Reginald Lee Aaron in two other separate robberies between Sept. 7 and Sept. 10.
They also believe he hit a woman with a hammer attack in the Winn Dixie parking lot of the Five Points Shopping Center on Monday, Sept. 11 while trying to steal her belongings.
"Anyone that comes out and committed that many problems in a short period of time, including one that cause some pretty serious injuries is a danger to the public," Capt. Brad Mason said.
Investigators say security cameras tie him to the first two crimes.
They also claim in those two instances he was armed with what they're calling a sharp object.
"In the two other cases, he made some threats about causing bodily harm. And in the other two cases there were some small struggles," Mason added.
Authorities believe the hammer attack may have escalated because the victim refused to hand over her property.
She was hit in her eye socket with a hammer.
Police expect to charge Aaron in the hammer attack once it's clear how severe the victim's injuries are.
