Oklahoma City police are searching for a man they say robbed several businesses over the last few weeks.

The string of robberies started three weeks ago at a Family Dollar on south Walker.

Since then, the suspect has struck several more times, including as recently as last night when he robbed a Dollar General on SW 59th.

He also held up a Braums on S. Penn.

"In each case it's the exact same," said Oklahoma City police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow. "He walks in, produces a gun and demands cash from the business."

Police previously released a slightly glitchy video of the hooded suspect robbing the Family Dollar, but weren't able to make an arrest.

Police hope a new video from the latest crime gets a better result.

The video shows the same suspect wearing a hoodie walk into the business, pull out a gun and begin to rob the store.

Luckily, the suspect eventually left without hurting anyone.

"All of these cases he's armed, fortunately no one has been injured in the robberies but that could always be different next time," said Wardlow. "We want to get him identified and off the streets. He has hit three times, possibly more."

Anyone with information on the suspect seen in the videos is asked to contact Crimestoppers.

The suspect is described as a white male with a small scar underneath his right eye.

In one of the crimes, he fled in a black Grand Marquis.
