Police released photos and a video on Wednesday of a man linked to three armed robberies in San Jose and a fourth in Milpitas earlier this year.
The suspect is described as a man in his mid to late 20s, standing between 5 feet 11 inches and 6 feet tall with an athletic build and mustache, San Jose police Officer Albert Morales said. The images show the suspect wearing Nike Cortez shoes, Morales said.
The first robbery took place in Milpitas just before 7:15 p.m. on March 5, according to Morales. The other three robberies happened later that same month at a Shell gas station at 101 Bernal Road around 8:45 p.m. on March 11, St. James Park around 9:15 a.m. on March 16 and a Taco Bell restaurant at 720 Story Road shortly after 10 a.m. on March 20, Morales said. In each case, the suspect was armed with a dark-colored handgun, demanded cash from the victims and then fled, police said.
The suspect is believed to be armed and dangerous, according to police.
The one-minute video released by San Jose police shows the suspect approach a gas station attendant and raising his black hooded zip-up sweatshirt to show he has a handgun on his waistband. The suspect is then seen putting a stack of cash into his sweater pocket and walking away from the station.
Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call San Jose police Detective Villanueva at (408) 277-4166. Anonymous tips can be made to Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers at (408) 947-7867.
