BATON ROUGE - Police are looking to identify a man believed to be behind a pair of armed convenience store robberies in the past two days.

His latest strike happened early this morning when a man entered the Cracker Barrel at 4245 Nicholson Drive with a handgun and demanded cash from the register. He grabbed an undisclosed amount of money and fled the scene in a dark-colored vehicle eastbound on East Boyd Drive.

BRPD confirmed the suspect in this morning's robbery is believed by detectives to be the same "well-dressed" bandit that robbed a gas station in West Baton Rouge Parish on Tuesday morning.

Investigators describe the man behind today's armed robbery as being 50 years of age, bald and wearing a yellow-colored long sleeve shirt. The bandit made headlines yesterday as security cameras captured a sharp-looking suspect leaving the scene at a Port Allen Chevron wearing slacks, shirt and tie. Deputies said the man was working with a woman in Tuesday's armed robbery as he grabbed cash and kidnapped a manager from the store at gunpoint.

Anyone with information on this robbery, or the Port Allen incident, is urged to contact the BRPD Armed Robbery Division at (225) 389-3845.
