Police are looking for a man they think robbed two Oklahoma City convenience stores in two days' time.

A Circle K at 2101 SW 89 was robbed at gunpoint about 2:40 a.m. Thursday, and a second Circle K at 1449 SE 25 was robbed about the same time Friday, police said.

Descriptions of the robber and the handgun used were similar, and in both cases the robber shed some of his clothing as he fled the scene.

Police said the man pointed a large semi-automatic handgun at the clerk at both stores and demanded they empty the cash register and safe. An undisclosed amount of cash was taken from each.

The suspect is described as a black man with a thin mustache, between 5 feet 3 inches and 5 feet 6 inches tall, and between 130 and 150 pounds. His is thought to be between the ages of 18 and 27.

Thursday, the robber wore a blue beanie, a black hoodie, a black T-shirt and black tennis shoes. Friday he wore a white zip-up hoodie, gray khaki pants, a white T-shirt and black tennis shoes.

Police recovered a blue beanie and a black hoodie just west of the location of the first robbery and a white hoodie and glove just west of the location of the second robbery.

Video surveillance was recovered at both scenes.
