Police appealed for help Wednesday to identify a serial robber who has hit three convenience stores in 10 days in the city, robbing the same store twice in a week.

And authorities believe he could be responsible for robberies in other Tarrant County cities.

Police released photographs on Wednesday of the suspect taken from store surveillance cameras in the Fort Worth holdups.

The bandit robbed Corner Store Valero in the 6700 block of Crowley Road on Sept. 22 and returned to the same store on Sept. 29. Also on Sept. 29, police believe the same man robbed the 7-Eleven at 1622 Hempill St.

In each Fort Worth case, the suspect entered the store and passed the clerk a note demanding money. The suspect has brandished a weapon on some holdups or told the clerk he had a weapon, police said. Clerks have complied in each case, giving the robber an undisclosed amount of money.

After getting the cash, the robber has fled the scene on foot.

Police did not release information on any other holdups in Tarrant County that the suspect may have committed, but detectives believe he could be a suspect in those crimes.

Witnesses described the robber as 25- to 30-years-old, about 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-9, medium build with a slight mustache and beard. He has worn a Nike hooded sweatshirt and knee length dark blue jean style shorts.

If you know or have information, call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 817-469-8477.
