MESA, Ariz. -- A reward is being offered to help identify and locate a suspect who has robbed a Mesa massage parlor three times since December.

Police said the same suspect robbed the AG Massage Parlor near Main Street and Recker Road on Dec. 5, May 24 and July 3.

During all three robberies, the suspect entered the business and pointed a gun at the victim, who was behind the counter. The suspect ordered the employee to let him into the office area where he demanded cash. After receiving the money, he fled on foot.

During the third robbery, the suspect physically assaulted the employee prior to fleeing. The 53-year-old female victim did not sustain any injuries.

The suspect is described as a white male, 20 to 25 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall, and approximately 160 pounds, unshaven with short brown hair.

He wore a light gray hooded jacket, stocking cap and large black sunglasses during the first armed robbery; a light blue T-shirt, navy pants, light-colored baseball cap with Bass Pro Shop logo and eyeglasses during the May armed robbery; and a black T-shirt, blue jeans, dark-colored baseball cap with a Bass Pro Shop logo and sunglasses during the most recent armed robbery.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or silentwitness.org. A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered in the case.
