Gwinnett County police are asking for help from the public in locating a man suspected in three separate armed robberies that have taken place in recent months.

Officers responded to three robbery calls between June 24 and Sept. 25 that resulted in similar suspect descriptions, Gwinnett police spokeswoman Officer Hideshi Valle said in a news release. In each case, victims said the man entered their store and raised his shirt to show that he was carrying a black handgun in his waistband before demanding money.

The man has stolen about $750 total between the three locations. Police did not release the locations of the robberies.

Investigators have shared photos of the man in the hopes that someone will recognize him.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Gwinnett detectives at 770-513-5300. To remain anonymous, tipsters can contact Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta at 404-577-8477 or visit www.stopcrimeATL.com. Tipsters can receive a cash reward for information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case.
