ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Anderson Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man possibly responsible for three convenience store robberies.

Police said that the first robbery happened on Sept. 29 at 12:30 a.m. at the Spinx Store on N. Main Street when the suspect purchased a snack cake then proceeded to grab money from the register.

Officers described the suspect as a white male between 25 and 35 years old, wearing khaki shorts, a blue or gray shirt and a blue baseball cap.

Police said the second robbery took place on Oct. 1 at 11 a.m. at the Plex-U store on Concord Road.

The suspect bought a soda, then after a few minutes he came back in and asked for change for $3, according to police. When the clerk opened the register, the man took an unknown amount of money and fled on foot.

The suspect was described as a white male in his 40s or 50s, with curly sandy brown hair and was wearing a red baseball hat, sunglasses, a dark T-shirt, blue jeans and running shoes, according to officers.

Police said the third robbery happened at 9:30 p.m. at the Stop-A-Minit Store on North Main Street. The suspect walked around for a short time before saying he had to go back outside for some money.

When he re-entered the store, he approached the counter and bought a soda, according to police. When the register was opened, he went towards the register to grab money, but the clerk partially shut the drawer.

The clerk told police that the suspect handed a note asking for money and if the clerk complied, the suspect would not use his weapon.

Officers described the suspect in the third robbery as a white male in his 40s wearing an orange stocking cap, dark sunglasses, jeans, a dark shirt with yellow sleeves and hiking-style boots at the time.

Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
