A suspected serial robber is on the loose in Philadelphia. Police are now asking for the public's help, because they are worried he will strike again. One grocery store was hit three times. Several other nearby businesses have been robbed as well, and now police are asking for help from the public in their search for a suspect.

The robbery suspect is described as a black male in his early 20's, standing about 5' 10" tall, weighing about 160 to 170 pounds. He usually dresses in black... from his baseball cap down to his boots. He has a small-caliber handgun, which he has pointed at store clerks in all the robberies that have occurred since May 2nd.

In addition to the grocery store, a dollar store was robbed twice, and just two days ago, a T-Mobile store was also targeted.

The suspect gets away in a 1990's 4-door Nissan or Mitsubishi.
