Memphis Police are asking for help identifying a suspect in at least three robberies and attempted robberies, two of them at the same business just a couple weeks apart.

Police say the first robbery happened June 21st about 8:55 p.m. at the Burger King in the 3300 block of Austin Peay Highway. Police say the suspect pointed a handgun at the employee at the drive-thru, demanding money. The employee ran away, and the suspect got away without taking anything.

About an hour later that same night, police say the same armed suspect robbed the CVS in the 5000 block of Stage Road. He took money from the register, then took off.

Police say Monday, July 9th at about 11:30 p.m., the same suspect returned to the CVS, robbing it at gunpoint again. He again took money from the register and took off.

The suspect is described as a white male with freckles, 25-30 years old, 5’11”, 170 lbs., wearing a black hoodie or blue plaid shirt, black mask, sunglasses, white cotton gloves, and faded jeans.

Anyone with information about this incident should call Crime Stoppers at 528-CASH.
