BROOKLYN - An 18-year-old who was arrested for holding up an East Flatbush store on Monday is now facing even more charges. 

As News 12 reported Wednesday, Desean Walcott was taken into custody for allegedly robbing the Yung Market on Nostrand Avenue at gunpoint, but investigators have now connected him to two more armed robberies. 

They say he was caught on surveillance video flashing two guns inside the Sip & Chat Restaurant on Jan. 16, and is believed to have pulled the same stunt at Carrasco's Grocery Store a day later, getting away with $600. 

Walcott is facing seven counts of robbery.
