Sacramento police are asking the public’s help in identifying a man suspected in two robberies of a Rite Aid store in midtown Sacramento.

The first robbery occurred about 12:09 p.m. Monday when a man entered the Rite Aid store at 2101 S St. and approached the pharmacy county. The man (pictured) handed a note to the clerk indicating that he was armed and demanding pharmaceuticals, according to a Police Department news release. No weapon was seen.

The second incident occurred about 10:52 a.m. Thursday when the suspect entered the same store and approached the pharmacy counter. The man again handed a note to the clerk indicating he would harm people in the store and demanded pharmaceuticals. Again, police said, no weapon was seen.

The man is described in his mid 20s, 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds, with a scruffy beard. He was wearing long black shorts, tan work boots and a black hooded sweatshirt with gray camouflage on the hood, sleeves and midsection.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect is asked to call police dispatch at (916) 264-5471, or Crime Alert at (916) 443-4357. Callers can also text a tip to 274637. Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information.
