A 30-year-old Mississauga man is once again facing charges in connection with multiple robberies in the GTA.

Five gas stations or convenience stores in Toronto’s west end, and one in Vaughan were robbed by a man last weekend, said Toronto Police.
The suspect allegedly covered his face with a scarf and demanded money, while threatening to assault employees who didn’t comply.
No injuries were reported, said police.
Karthik Poologanathan, 30, was arrested on Jan. 4.
Poologanathan is facing five counts of robbery, five counts of disguise with intent, and five counts of failing to comply with probation.
He appeared in count Tuesday.
Poologanathan was charged by Toronto Police in a similar spree in August 2012.
