The first incident happened on Tuesday, November 12th at the Pizza Hut located at 6242 Stenton Avenue. The suspect approached the counter with his hand inside his jacket, acting like he had a weapon, and demanded money.
The employee alerted co-workers of the robbery, prompting the suspect to flee the scene empty-handed.
A week later, on Tuesday, November 19th, the same man entered a Kentucky Fried Chicken, located next to the Pizza Hut on Stenton Avenue, handed an employee a note demanding money and stating he had a gun.
When the employee opened the cash register the suspect reached over the counter and grabbed $100 from the cash drawer then fled.
The suspect is described as a black male, 40-45 years-old, 5'6"-5'7", medium build, goatee, wearing a black knit cap, tan hooded jacket, dark colored pants, white sneakers and eyeglasses.
