Caught On Camera: Hunt For Serial Robber! Do You Know This Guy?

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) - The hunt is on to find a serial robber who has targeted at least 4 stores in the past month.

Fresno police say he wears a wig, a hat, or even a surgical mask every time he's robs a store.

After casually walking up to the cashier, he usually passes a note demanding cash, and then shows a gun under his shirt.

Police say he hit a northwest Fresno Christian book store.

Workers inside 'The Family Christian Store' on West Shaw near Marks say the man walked in and demanded cash.

The store is a non-profit that raises money for missionary trips all over the world.

Fresno police say days later, the robber hit a CVS on Clinton, then a Rite-Aid on Shaw and a Walgreens on Brawley.

While at the Rite-Aid, he patiently to get a scoop of ice cream then he passed a note demanding cash, and even showing a gun.

This time the cashier was so nervous he couldn't get the register to open. The armed robber took off.

Police say he's approximately 25 to 35 years old, 5'10 to 6'2, with a medium build.

He disguises himself wearing a black wig or surgical mask.

Police say he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to the Fresno Police Department, Detective 621-2427, or Crimestoppers at (559) 498-STOP.

Remember you can remain anonymous and may receive a reward up to $1,000 in cash.

Fresno detectives say they're now checking out other armed robberies to see if he could be tied to even more crimes.
