FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KMPH) -

A man suspected in the robbery of a yogurt shop and a local convenience store may be behind two additional robberies, the Fresno Police Department said.

The suspected robber, described as a 5 foot 7 inch Hispanic male with a slim build, has been linked to the Feb. 13 robbery at Petunia's Place book store near Palm and Bullard and the March 12 robbery of Papa Murphy's Pizza near Brawley and Clinton.

On Feb.16 the man robbed a Star Mart convenience store near Fruit and Clinton and on March 11 he robbed a TCBY Yogurt, near Cedar and Herndon, police said.

Surveillance footage has been released of two of the robberies.

The man has targeted female clerks in each of the robberies, police said. In each of the robberies, police say the man poses as a customer before approaching the front counter and flashing a handgun tucked in the waistband of his pants. He then demands money from the register along with personal property from the clerk, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 498-STOP where a tip could earn cash leading to an arrest.
