Details are becoming clearer about a man accused of robbing two stores.

Daniel McKay II of Amsterdam threatened employees at Ben & Jerry’s with a weapon, but didn’t show one, police said.

McKay allegedly then took cash from the register and ran from the store.

While they were investigating, the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office responded to a second robbery at a Stewart’s on Route 9 in Malta.

McKay demanded money while once again saying he was armed, the sheriff’s office said.

McKay matched the description in both robberies.

He is being held in the Saratoga County Jail.
