NORMAN, Oklahoma -- Police have released surveillance video and a sketch of a man suspected in several robberies in Norman, Oklahoma City and Midwest City.

Watch surveillance video of the suspect in several robberies.

Since January 1, the robber has hit numerous targets, including Hallmark stores in Norman and Midwest City. Police believe the same man also held up Plato's Closet, Cricket Wireless and Party Galaxy in Oklahoma City.

Police said the armed robber's targets are unexpected because crooks usually target convenience stores, because they mostly deal with cash.

Megan Hildreth works at the GameStop video game store next door to the Party Galaxy that was robbed. She said a police officer told her the man was armed.

"He said whenever he does the robberies, he lifts up his shirt and shows he has a gun in his pants," said Hildreth.

Police are asking anyone with information about the robberies to call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300.
