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.
