TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Police Department is asking for the public's help identifying a serial armed robbery suspect.  

He is described as a white male, 25 to 35 years old, 5-foot 8-inches to 6-foot tall with a medium build.  According to a TPD release in several of the robberies the suspect has shown the victims a handgun and has worn at least two different wigs as a disguise.  

No one has been injured during these robberies, but Sgt. Pete Dugan with TPD said they're worried the man could become more dangerous as he becomes more desperate. 

 "When you have an individual that commits this many robberies, that desperation is obviously a little bit higher. And when it gets this high with this many robberies we start to worry...is that level of violence also going to increase? And the last thing we want to see is somebody going to get hurt," Dugan said. "This is an individual that should not be walking freely in our city. Or any city for that matter."
