The man wanted in connection with the slayings of two men in Seattle a month ago is also a suspect in an armed robbery Sunday in New Jersey, police said.

Ali Muhammad Brown, 30, who is homeless, is wanted on charges of robbery and possession of a weapon in connection with the robbery of a man at a Point Pleasant Beach coffee-house, according to media reports.

Around 8 a.m. Sunday, a 46-year-old Washington, D.C., man was robbed at gunpoint at Green Planet Coffee, according to police. The robber got away with the man’s wallet and keys, police said.

A Point Pleasant Beach police detective said the robber changed his clothes after the robbery.

Based on evidence found in the area, police believe the assailant, described as 6-foot-1 in height and approximately 30 years old, is from the East Orange, N.J., area. The gun was not found, police said.

Point Pleasant Beach police say they are working with police in Seattle and the U.S. Marshals Service in the hunt for Brown, according to the Asbury Park Press.

Seattle police have identified Brown as a suspect in the fatal shootings of Ahmed Said, 27, and Dwone Anderson-Young, 23, on June 1 in Leschi. The motive for the slayings is not known.

Police say Brown left with the two victims from RPlace, a gay Capitol Hill nightclub, and drove toward Anderson-Young’s house in Said’s Mitsubishi Galant. As they were outside Anderson-Young’s home, Brown pulled out a gun and killed the two men, police said.

A police source said they identified Brown as a suspect from fingerprints found inside the Mitsubishi.

Seattle police say said Brown is also wanted on warrants for failure to register as a sex offender and for the slayings. In March 2012, Brown pleaded guilty to communication with a minor for immoral purposes and was sentenced to a year in jail.

Seattle police said last week that Brown may be hiding in Pierce County.
