PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Police Department is asking for the public's help to identify a suspect who robbed several businesses in August.

According to Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos, the suspect armed with a handgun enters a store, covers his face with his shirt then walks up to an employee and demands money.

Martos said the suspect typically also wears sunglasses and a baseball cap.

Martos said no one has been injured during any of the robberies.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 40s, 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall and 220 to 230 pounds.

There is no suspect vehicle information at this time.

Detectives continue to investigate the armed robberies and are asking for the public's help to identify the suspect.

Video surveillance from one of the robberies shows the suspect after he has walked out of the store and pulled his shirt away from his face. Police hope someone will be able to identify him.

Anyone with information is asked to call Phoenix police at 602-262-6141 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS to remain anonymous.
