Police are on the lookout for a suspect believed to be involved in a pair of armed robberies at metro convenience stores.

One robbery occurred at the Phase 3 Gas and Convenience store, located near NE 23rd St. and I-35, around 11 p.m. on Monday.

Surveillance footage from inside the gas station shows the suspect enter holding a pistol, wearing a dark-colored hoodie, gloves and something covering his face. The clerk complies with the suspect’s demands and hands over an undisclosed amount of cash from the register. The suspect then flees on foot.
