Suspect sought in weekend robberies in Oklahoma, Texas

Local authorities are investigating three robberies that happened over the weekend that they believe to be connected.

Gainesville (Texas) Police say on Saturday the man pictured pushed over an elderly woman and stole her purse at a Dollar General store. Then Sunday morning police say the same man threatened another woman with a knife and took off with her bag at CVS Pharmacy.

Investigators believe the suspect also hit up the Dollar General in Marietta, Oklahoma, and took cash from the register around 8:30 a.m. Sunday. Police Chief Dustin Scott says the man approached the register with a bag of chips. When the registered opened the suspect reached over the counter, took money and then fled the store. Scott says he got away with less than $200.

No one was seriously hurt.
