NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The NYPD is asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect wanted for several robberies in Brooklyn.

Police said the first robbery took place on Aug. 3 around 8:50 p.m. The suspect allegedly entered a McDonalds on Atlantic Avenue and demanded money from the register after displaying a note before fleeing with cash.

Later that night, police said, the suspect entered a Jamaican restaurant on Fulton Street around 11:10 p.m. asked the victim for directions before holding up a paper demanding money, backed up by a threat to shoot. The suspect is said to have fled the scene with money and juice.

Two days later, the suspect allegedly entered a Golden Crust on Atlantic Avenue around 7:14 a.m. This time, police said the suspect lifted his shirt to reveal a gun handle before removing money from the register and leaving.

At 4:05 p.m. the same day, police said, the suspect entered a drug store on Fulton Street and pretended to be purchasing vitamins. Instead, the suspect allegedly passed a note demanding money and claiming he was armed. Police said the victim opened the register and gave the suspect money, who then fled.

Police said the most recent robbery took place on Aug. 6 around 7:30 a.m., at a Burger King on Marcy Avenue. Again, the suspect is alleged to have told his victim that he was armed and was demanding money. In this incident, the suspect made off with no money.

No injuries have been reported.

The suspect is believed to be between 25 and 30-years-old, 6’3″ and weighing around 210 lbs. Police said the suspect has a tattoo on the right side of his neck depicting Chinese characters and wore a gray-colored t-shirt during several of the incidents.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips to the Crime Stoppers’ website or by texting CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577.
