Police are looking for a serial robber wanted in at least three separate armed robberies on Sunday.

Surveillance cameras captured images of the suspect pulling a gun on the several store clerks in a demand for cash from the register.

The store clerk at Samir's Grocery in the Paseo District could not see past the gun to get a good look at the suspect.

In that case, the suspect walked in just as the clerk's back is to the door. He forced the clerk behind the counter and demanded the cash from the register.

The suspect used the same strategy in two other robberies. All of the incidents occurred between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m.

By closely reviewing all of the surveillance images, investigators have also noticed some identifying marks on the suspect. He appears to have a burn or a birth mark on his right hand and very short hair.

"In none of these robberies has anyone been hurt, but obviously this is a violent man," Sergeant Jennifer Wardlow of the Oklahoma City Police Department said.

During the robbery at Speedy's Food Mart in southeast Oklahoma City, the suspect allegedly threatened the clerk and said, "I will blow your head off."

After getting the cash, the suspect was seen running from the store and getting into a dark-colored SUV.

The violence seemed to escalate in each incident.

When the robber arrived to Duo Shell on S. High Street in Oklahoma City, the suspect yelled to the clerk, "Give me your money, or I'll kill you."

It's unclear how much money the suspect has made off with, but police want to catch him before he strikes again.

"Anytime you have an armed confrontation like this, where he does have a weapon, that can always change," Sgt. Wardlow said.

Police have asked everyone to be on the lookout.

"We do consider him to be dangerous, so we want to find him and get him off the streets," Sgt. Wardlow said.

If you recognize the suspect, call Crime Stoppers at 405-235-7300.
