Fort Worth Police say a serial robber is hitting more businesses and targeting women at the counters.

He's robbed a bank, a couple of Taco Buenos, three nail salons and a donut shop in West Fort Worth and into White Settlement in the past couple of months.

He doesn't just show a gun.  He points it at people.  The man police say is between 35 and 40 years old, about six-feet tall and 200 pounds has not fired his gun at anyone or physically hurt his victims, but police are concerned.

"This individual is dangerous," said Officer Sharron Neal of the Fort Worth Police Department.  "He is armed and is targeting businesses where there are more women."

There was a woman working the counter at Donut Delight... the tenth victim in two months.

"He brings along his own cash bag so they can put the money into his bag," Neal said.

Timmy Petrovic of Joe's Pasta and Pizza near Loop 820 and White Settlement Road works right by the bank that was robbed and the donut shop.

"I'm kind of a protetive neighbor and I wish I would have been there so I could have helped," said Petrovic.

Police say they don't want that kind of help.  They say no one without a badge should approach this suspect.

"We're more concerned becuase his activity has picked up," said Officer Neal.
