Documents said, after he was arrested Wednesday, Eric Whitefield told police that he robbed the Shell gas station on Versailles Road on March 24th and then again on March 29th.

In both cases, Whitefield used a large knife to demand cash from the employee, police said.

Whitfield is charged with three counts of robbery, tampering with physical evidence, drug possession and violating the condition of his release.
