NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – New York City police are looking for a suspect wanted for a robbery and four attempted robberies.

Police say they all took place between April 28 and May 8. They say the suspect walks in to a store covering his face with his hand under his shirt pretending to have a gun and demands cash at the register.

The first attempted robbery happened at a Broadway Duane Reade on April 28.  The second happened just a few blocks away at a Cosi also on Broadway two days later. 

Then on May 6, police say the suspect tried to rob a Starbucks on 7 Avenue.

Two days after trying to rob that Starbucks, he got away with an unknown amount of money after robbing a 5 Avenue CVS on May 8, according to police.

That same day, the suspect also tried to rob a second Duane Reade, police said.
