Man suspected of 8 robberies among 3 King Soopers stores

LAKEWOOD, Colo. -- Police are looking to find a man suspected of eight robberies at three King Soopers supermarkets in the past six months.

The man has not displayed any weapons and no one has been injured.

The man is described as white, about 6-foot, 25 to 35 years old with a medium build and facial hair.

The eight robberies have happened at three King Soopers stores since July.
