Nashua police arrested two women who they charged with robbing a city gas station Saturday night.

Police were called to the Hess Express station at 79 East Hollis St. a little after 9:30 p.m. for a report of an armed robbery. A woman had walked into the store, pointed a gun at a customer and demanded cash, police said. The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of money.

Detectives investigated and charged Viviana Rosario, 27, of 35A Gillis St., Nashua, with committing the robbery. They also charged Joanne Harden, 44, of 10 Heon Court, Nashua, with driving Rosario to and from the robbery, police said.

Rosario is charged with robbery, a Class A felony, criminal threatening and, because police found several Clonazepam pills on her when she was arrested, possession of a controlled drug, which are Class B felonies, police said.

Rosario was arrested just last summer and charged with robbing the Subway restaurant at 291 Main St., at knifepoint. During that robbery, Rosario was accused of being armed with a knife and fleeing with cash while discarding some of her clothes, police said.

Harden is charged with criminal liability for conduct of another – robbery, a Class A felony, police said.

Rosario was held without bail and Harden was held on $10,000 cash only bail pending their arraignments at Nashua district court, police said.

The Class A felonies are punishable by up to 15 years in prison plus fines. Class B felonies are punishable by up to seven years in prison plus fines.
