The Broward Sheriff's Office is asking the public's help in finding a man they said has robbed three different business in the county. His latest robbery happened on Sept. 4, 2018.

Over the last week, a bearded man has walked into two Broward 7-Eleven stores and a Domino’s Pizza, pointed a gun at employees and demanded cash, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.

But it was his last hit that may have given detectives a little help in finding him — he dropped his hat, revealing his bald head.

On Wednesday, detectives released video from the robbery at the 7-Eleven, 1500 S. Cypress Road in Pompano Beach. Just after 1:30 a.m. Tuesday the man walked in, approached the clerk and ordered him to the cash register.

The video shows the clerk complying. After getting the cash, the robber dropped his baseball cap, the video shows, giving a better picture of the man.

Detectives say the man was also responsible for two other robberies. He is wanted for an armed assault on Aug. 31 at the 7-Eleven at 600 E. Oakland Park Blvd. in Oakland Park and a robbery on Aug. 29 at the Domino’s at 1436 E. Atlantic Blvd. in Pompano Beach.

According to BSO, the robber has a mostly bald head and long gray beard. He is about 6 feet tall, roughly 160 pounds and has tattoos on his arms.

The man was last seen in a black T-shirt, black pants, a black baseball cap and sneakers.

Anyone with information is asked to call BSO Robbery Det. Armando Enrique at 954-321-4233 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477).
