    Fort Worth police are asking for help searching for an armed and dangerous man who robbed four convenience stories in Fort Worth in just six hours.

    Police say the man robbed four convenience stores within hours of each other. Authorities are particularly concerned that the man displays semi-automatic weapons during the robberies.

    "As soon as he walks into the store he's brandishing an automatic pistol," said Officer Sharron Neal of the Fort Worth Police Department.

    The serial robbery suspect has no fear in showing his weapon and demanding cash - as seen surveillance video and in images.

    The suspect flashed his weapon when he robbed a 7-Eleven on West 7th Street the morning of July 31, the last of four robberies committed by the same suspect.

    "The Fort Worth Police Department is very concerned about this individual because of the way he walks in and starts making demands," Neal said.

    Six hours before the robbery in the Cultural District, the same suspect robbed a neighborhood store on Northwest 21st Street.

    "Its been a neighborhood store, been here for years, so we'd like to keep it like that and safe for all the kids around here," said Frances Abulez.

    The robbery there happened around 11:30 p.m. on July 30. About seven minutes later the suspect, wearing a black and white "Kings" hat and blue bandanna over his face, robbed a Shell Gas station on University Drive.

    Two hours later, he did the same thing at another Shell Station on Boat Club Road near Eagle Mountain Lake.

    No one has been hurt, but the way the man moves concerns police.

    "Because of his mannerism, the way that he walks in, his stance and everything like that," said Neal. "So, we're very concerned for the safety of everyone."

    Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the man, who police say is Hispanic.

    So far only the four robberies have been linked to the suspect.

    Anyone with information on the robberies should call 817- 392- 4370, the Fort Worth robbery unit, or Crime Stoppers at 817- 469- TIPS where you could receive up to $1,000.00 in reward money.
