DENVER -- Police believe one man has carried out at least 12 violent robberies in Denver and Aurora in the past few weeks.

"As soon as he came in he jumped over the counter with his gun out and told everyone to get down," says store owner Bob Fugate.

Fugate showed us the video of the crime and the man dressed in a white jersey with the number 32 on it robbing him.

Investigators believe the same suspect walked into Aleisha Nuttall's store on Thursday and held her at gunpoint as well.

He did it for just $60 cash. Video shows her handing it over to him. "He says, 'Give me all your money -- do you think I'm f***ing kidding?' and he put the gun to my temple," Nuttall says.

Police say Nuttall's store was the last hit for this suspect, but they also say he shows no signs of stopping.

Investigators believe he has held up at least four Subway stores, a Game Stop video game store, a Cold Stone Ice Cream shop, and then Aleisha's Best last week.

Aurora Police say catching this robber is a high priority. They can't discuss specifics, but they say right now there is an active operation to get him off the streets, and they're working with Denver Police to get it done.

"The way that he's coming in there he's coming in pretty violent," says Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson. "There's a chance he could be hurt or somebody else could be hurt."

Surveillance videos show similarities in the robberies. The gun is tiny and black and it's always held in his left hand. The suspect also wears black jogging pants.

One of the most frightening aspects of the holdups is that the suspect makes his victims get on the ground, and he's not hesitant to put the gun right at their heads.
