A man considered armed and dangerous remains on the loose after he robbed three Phoenix-area businesses last month, Silent Witness officers said.

The suspect made clean getaways after holding up a Circle K store, Mr. Wong's and El Amigo Restaurant.

Police said the robberies occurred between Jan. 2 and Jan. 21.

In each case, officers said the suspect entered the business and engaged the clerk in a conversation.

He then pulled out a weapon and demanded money. The suspect spoke softly but raised his voice as the robberies progressed, according to police.

The suspect then fled on foot after obtaining the money from the register.

He is described as possibly Hispanic between 20 to 30 years old. He is between 5'3" and 5'6" tall and weighs 120 to 130 pounds. He has a moustache and goatee.

People with any information regarding the robberies are asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or toll free at 1-800-343-TIPS.
