— Raleigh police are asking for the public’s help to identify a man wanted in three recent armed robberies.

In each case, the man has worn the same disguise: a large wig and fake facial hair. He showed a gun and took money and cellphones before fleeing.

Raleigh police said the first robbery was at 8:30 p.m. on March 22 at a Subway restaurant in the 3000 block of Capital Boulevard.

The second robbery was about 9:45 p.m. on April 16 at a Papa John’s in the 5000 block of Capital Boulevard. In that case, the robber also struck an employee with the gun. The person was not seriously hurt.

The third robbery was about 9:30 p.m. at a Subway in the 4000 block of Pleasant Valley Road.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357 or go online for text and email reporting options. Crime Stoppers pays cash for information leading to arrests, and callers may remain confidential.

    finally a smart robber. Most walk up with no disguise not thinking about the fact they will be on 10 different cameras from the parking lot to the store.
