An armed man on a robbery spree at Oklahoma City cellphone stores often threatens female employees with gun violence before making off with cash, police said Thursday.
One woman was robbed twice in 10 days at a south Oklahoma City store.
Police are asking for the public's help to identify the robber.
The man has struck at least six times since May, Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said. The first five robberies were in south Oklahoma City, but the latest one was on the northwest side.
Victims have described the man as white, in his mid-30s to 40s. He is between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-10 and weighs about 170 pounds. He wears oval eye glasses and has worn a black hat, red baseball cap or a tan hunting hat during the robberies, which have occurred between about 4:10 and 6:45 p.m. He has worn a black or white T-shirt or a striped shirt, jeans and black boots, according to victims.
One victim saw a white car speeding away after a robbery.
Boost Mobile locations have been targeted at least four times by the robber, according to police records.
Boost Mobile, 7515 S Pennsylvania Ave., was robbed July 9 and again July 19. In the first robbery, the man showed a gun in his waistband and told a female employee working alone he would shoot her unless she gave him money. During the second robbery, the same employee recognized the man right away. She was working with another employee at that time. He showed a gun and again demanded cash, a police report states.
