The suspect in the shootings outside Brooklyn’s Peter Luger Steakhouse has five open warrants against him in North Carolina — including for a gunpoint-robbery case in which cops warn he should “be considered armed and very dangerous,” The Post has learned.

Arkies Sommerville, 24, allegedly committed the armed robbery in Littleton, NC, on Feb. 2 with his younger brother, Armel Sommerville, who was busted on an unrelated murder charge earlier this month.

The Somervilles are accused of stealing an undisclosed amount of money and valuables from a man who was tied up, beaten and had a gun held to his head inside his Cherry Street home, according to a Facebook post by the Littleton Police Department.

The Feb. 7 post included photos of Arkies and Armel and said they were likely in “the Littleton area as well as Halifax and surrounding counties.

“If either suspect is seen we urge caution and recommend calling 911 immediately as both are to be considered armed and very dangerous,” the department added.

Earlier this month, the Northampton County, NC, Sheriff’s Department announced that Armel, 19, was busted April 16 in the slaying of Raheem Scott, 23, whose bullet-riddled body was found at the West Wynn Mobile Home Park in Garysburg three days earlier.

Armel was ordered held without bond on charges of first-degree murder and discharging a firearm in the city limits, the sheriff’s department said in a Facebook post.

In addition to being wanted in the Feb. 2 incident, there are open warrants for Arkies’s arrest in four other cases in North Carolina, a law-enforcement source told The Post.

It’s unknown what crimes are alleged in those warrants.

Published reports show that a man named Arkies Somerville has a record of arrests in North Carolina that dates to at least 2015 in a series of robberies and other incidents.

A man with the same name and birthdate as the Peter Luger suspect has a 2016 conviction for carrying a concealed weapon and lying to authorities in Halifax County, NC, court records show.

That case resulted in a suspended sentence and probation.
