Police arrested a man Thursday suspected of robbing three convenience stores in southwest Oklahoma City.
Reginald Raymond III, 24, was arrested about 11:40 p.m. Thursday on three complaints of robbery with a dangerous weapon. He was being held without bail at the Oklahoma County jail Friday.
Police think Raymond is connected to three armed robberies over the past two weeks. The first robbery was committed shortly after midnight April 1 at 7421 S Pennsylvania Ave. Another convenience store was robbed at 12:40 a.m. Monday at 2840 SW 59, police said. A third convenience store, 2921 S Agnew Ave., was robbed about 11:35 p.m. Thursday.
In each case, employees at the convenience stores said a man came into the store with a handgun, demanding money. Witnesses in two of the robberies told police the gun was equipped with a laser sight.
Witnesses described the robber as a white man, 5 feet 8 inches tall, 25 to 30 years old, wearing a blue or purple hoodie. In two cases, witnesses said the man was wearing black paint on his face. In the third case, the man was wearing a camouflage face mask, witnesses said.
