Police are on the lookout for a serial robbery suspect who hit multiple businesses on the south side of the metro last week.
Surveillance cameras caught the suspect robbing the Christie’s Toy Box in the 6300 block of S. Western Ave. just before 10 p.m. on Oct. 26. The suspect entered the store wearing a hoodie with a bandana covering his face, approached the counter with a gun and demanded cash. The teller complied and the suspect fled the scene.
Then on Oct. 28, a suspect fitting the description hit the Domino’s Pizza store located in the 4600 block of S. Penn. Ave. around just after 10 p.m. A delivery driver returned to the store and was ambushed from behind by the suspect, who forced himself inside of the store and again demanding cash while brandishing a gun.
The suspect took the money from the safe and the personal money from three store employees before leaving the store and fleeing in a red or maroon SUV driven by someone else.
Finally on Oct. 31, at about 12:45 a.m., the suspect struck again at the Papa John’s store in the 2200 block of S. I-240 Service Rd. The manager of the store was preparing the night deposit when the suspect entered the store with a gun and demanded money. The manager complied and the suspect left on foot.
In each robbery the suspect was wearing a hoodie with a bandana or scarf covering his face. In the Papa John’s robbery, the suspect was wearing sunglasses.
