Help Catch a Robber

The Sacramento Police Department is seeking the community's help in identifying a suspect responsible for a string of armed robberies. 

On July 31, 2012 at 12:33 a.m., a male white suspect robbed a cab driver at gunpoint near the 1200 block of O Street. 

On August 7, 2012 at 9:03 a.m., a similar suspect robbed a neighborhood market in the 1700 block of T Street. 

On August 13, 2012 at approximately 1:45 p.m., an armed gunman robbed a convenience store in the 2500 block of Land Park Drive.  Within the hour, the same gunman returned to the T Street market, where he committed yet another armed robbery. 

The description in all four robberies is similar.  He is described as a male white adult, 30-40 years old, approximately 5'11", 250 pounds, with a light brown ponytail and goatee.
