PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Police are searching for the man who has robbed clerks at four Phoenix Circle Ks, hitting one location twice.

The Phoenix Police Department released surveillance videos and photos of the suspect Tuesday, explaining that he is believed to be behind as many as five armed robberies since April 2. The most recent robbery was just last week.

The suspect is described as a black man between the ages of 25 and 40. He is between 5 feet 7 inches and 6 feet tall. He has a thin build, black hair and brown eyes.

“He carries a handgun or rifle and demands money,” according to the Silent Witness flyer.

Surveillance video from one of the armed robberies shows the suspect calmly walking into the store with what looks like a black bandanna covering his nose and mouth. There is no audio, but he is clearly talking to the clerk as he or she removes cash from the register and hands it over. The man took the money as if accepting change and left without further incident.
