Police have released surveillance video of the man who robbed a number of pizza shops in the city, including one just this week.

The most recent incident happened on Wednesday at Mom's Pizza at 219 East Willow Grove Avenue. Investigators say the man pointed a gun at an employee and demanded money.

That worker gave the suspect $190 in cash from the register and the bandit fled.

He is described as a black male standing 5'10" tall with a dark complexion. He was wearing a ski mask, black pants and a blue shirt.

A suspect fitting a similar description is also wanted for the robbery of a Holiday Express pizza at 7415 Stenton Avenue on July 29th and a Papa John's Pizza at 1555 Wadsworth Avenue on July 31st.
