— Investigators said an armed robber is targeting small speciality shops in North Raleigh and Wake Forest.

Officials said a man struck again Tuesday at 'Shop 20-12' on Six Forks Road.

The same man is believed responsible for five other armed robberies since Nov. 21. His targets include a florist, a card shop and a nutrition store.

Police said the locations are likely being targeted because they tend to have less security.
