One man is accused of committing at least six robberies in Shaker Heights and Cleveland Heights in the past 10 days.

Police said that the man — described as black, aged mid-30s to mid 40s, 5 feet, 10 inches to 6 feet tall with some facial hair and wearing glasses — is suspected in robberies at Walgreens, First Merit Bank, Rite Aid, Payless Shoes and two Subway locations.

He's pictured in three photos above.

Three of the robberies — on Dec. 22 — happened within 30 minutes of each other.

And Subway manager Mike Patel said the same man robbed his store last month, getting away with $150. 

The suspect was driving a small- to mid-sized white 4-door car. He may also have been involved in robberies in Garfield Heights, Maple Heights and Shaker Heights last month.

Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call Maple Heights Police Detective Andrew Sperie at 216-491-9623 or Shaker Heights Police Detective Walt Siegel at 216-491-1275.
