Fayetteville, N.C. — Fayetteville police are searching for a man in connection with business robberies on Sunday morning and Tuesday afternoon.
Police said officers responded to a Subway restaurant at 1677 Owen Drive Sunday at 11:36 a.m. in reference to a reported robbery.
Investigators said a man entered the restaurant, approached the counter, and handed the employee a note demanding money. When the employee was unable to open the register, the man left on foot empty handed.
Police said officers responded Tuesday at 12:36 p.m. to a similar robbery at Baldino’s restaurant at 3018 Ft. Bragg Road.
Investigators said that a man approached the counter and handed an employee a note demanding money before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash.
While running from Baldino’s, the man lost his shoes and a shirt, authorities said. He was seen entering the community center at Fayetteville Technical Community College, where he obtained a blue blazer, khaki pants and a tie.
Authorities believe the same man is responsible for both incidents and said it appears as though he cut his hair following the first robbery to change his appearance.
The man is described as being 5 feet 10 inches tall with a thin build and brown hair. Authorities said he appears to have a tattoo or mark on his right forearm.
Anybody with information is asked to call Fayetteville police at 910-709-8063 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-8477.
