Police are asking for the public's help in finding suspects in three separate robberies.

On Friday, a man in his 20s entered Goodies Market in Wahiawa and displayed a handgun and demanded money, police said.

The robbery, classified as first-degree, occurred 9:08 a.m Thursday. at 198 S. Kamehameha Highway.

The man fled in an unknown direction.

He is described as 5-foot-6, 130 pounds, with short brown hair, wearing a dark blue jacket, khaki shorts and a green camouflage cap.

On Tuesday at 2:09 a.m., a man in his early 20s entered the 7-Eleven Aiea store at 99-187 Aiea Heights Drive, and demanded money from the cashier, police said. 

Police said the man fled in an unknown direction.

He is described as 5 feet tall, 120 pounds, wearing a black/gray hoodie, white mask and dark colored jeans.

On Tuesday at 8:40 p.m., a man entered the Waipio Shell gas station at 94-609 Ukee St.

Police said he approached the cashier, demanded money, then fled in an unknown direction.

The suspect is described as 18 to 20 years old, 5 feet 2 inches to 5 feet 4 inches tall, 100-120 pounds, wearing a dark-colored hoodie with white shorts.

There were two other convenience store  robberies last week.

Police released video and photos of a suspect, who robbed the  7-Eleven at 94-911 Farrington Highway in Waipahu at about 2:14 a.m. on Dec.16, brandished a handgun, and demanded money.

The suspect is believed to be in his 20s, around 5'6" to 5'8" tall, weighing between 100 to 120 pounds. The video shows him dressed in a green long-sleeve shirt with a gray shirt over his face, white and blue checkered shorts, black baseball cap with "C" logo, white socks, and white Nike shoes.

A gunman, also wearing a cap, long-sleeve shirt, shorts, white socks and sneakers, held up the Tesoro gas station at 94-1082 Ka Uka Boulevard in Waipio at 2:30 a.m. on Dec. 18, police said.

The suspect in that case is believed to be in his 20s, is about 5-feet tall with a slim build. He was also wearing dark shorts and a gray hat with the word "cult" embroidered on the front. He wore white shoes with black laces and white shocks.

Police are not saying if they believe the cases are related.

Anyone with information on these cases is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or *CRIME on a cell phone.

I'm going to ask the question everyone wonders but no one ever asks out of political correctness; Why does the HPD and SA waste newsprint and bandwidth by printing these useless descriptions of suspects without the most obvious, namely, what is the probable RACE of the perp? Conveniently omitting the most important trait in a bow to political correctness is not only counterproductive, it's downright stupid and a waste of time. HPD must not be very serious about apprehending suspects.

Exactly. It's not racist or bigotry to describe a suspect's race. How is it not politically correct to do so? White, black, oriental- whatever. The point is to provide the most complete description for the public's benefit. The perp could very well be Michael J. Fox from the description provided........the height and weight matches. Hey- Parkinson's can really bring a guy down.

Serial robber, could be the same guy. Make sure no one gets hurt. If the guy demands money, give it to him. Because once he takes it, then if he's captured he will be convicted. If u refuse, he might shoot, which is not good for u.
