LAKEWOOD, Colo. — Police in Lakewood want help identifying a man who has held up a couple of liquor stores recently.

The suspect went into a liquor store near W. Jewell Ave. and S. Oak St. at about 7:30 p.m. Friday, January 18 and threatened the store clerk with a knife. Police say he stole money from the cash register and left on foot.

Then on Sunday, January 20 at 8:35 p.m., a white male suspect entered a liquor store At W. Jewell Ave. and S. Kipling St.

The suspect threatened the store clerk with a handgun and stole money from the cash register. The suspect again left the store on foot but a possible related vehicle is a dark, two-toned Ford Explorer.

Lakewood police detectives think the same suspect committed both armed robberies.

Surveillance video images show he is a white male between 5’8″ and 6’2″. He has a medium build with sandy colored hair with a slight red tint. He has blue or green eyes and a very short beard and mustache.

The suspect wore a black or dark knit type cap and a worn “pea cot” style jacket. He had a green scar, black faded jeans, black shoes and black knit gloves.

Anyone who can help identify this suspect can call Detective Feik with the Lakewood police department at 3030987-7111.
