A man suspected in six armed robberies in Oklahoma City has struck again.

The Oklahoma City Police Department reports that approximately 9:20 p.m. Sept. 10 a man wearing a black stocking cap with eye holes over his face entered Family Dollar, 3618 Newcastle Road, and pointed a handgun at the clerk.

Martina Hidrogo was shopping in the store at the time of the robbery and called 911.

"I see a guy dressed in all black, hoodie, those ski masks with like holes and I'm just like bust a u-ie, turn around, call 911," Hidrogo said.

The man then fled the store. Police say the man is behind six other similar armed robberies. In each robbery, the man wears the same black stocking cap and points a pistol at the clerk.

The man has struck this Family Dollar once before, on August 14. In most of the robberies, the man has held the gun to the heads of the victims.

Anyone with information on the man is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 405-235-7300.
