Police would like to speak to this man about three armed robberies.

Police are calling for the public’s help to identify a man who committed three armed robberies at liquor stores along Albany Highway last year.

The first was on May 5 last year about 6pm when a man entered a liquor store on Albany Highway in Gosnells with his face partially covered by a beanie.

Armed with a knife, he approached a lone female employee and demanded cash while pointing the knife at her.

He was handed cash before running from the store.

The second incident happened on May 22 about 11.40am at a liquor store on Albany Highway in Bentley.

The man threatened a female attendant with a large knife and demanded money and fled with cash.

The third incident happened at the same liquor store in Bentley the following day about 12.55pm.

The man again entered the store and threatened the female employee with a knife before being given cash and running away.

The man was described as aged 40 to 45 years old, fair skinned, about 180 to 190 centimetres and of a medium build.

During all three robberies he wore a black hooded jumper and a pair of dark blue jeans with distinctive fade patches on the back and front area of the upper and lower legs.

During both robberies committed at the Bentley store the man wore a black beanie over his face with his chin exposed, large black gloves and black sports shoes with white stripes and soles.

Anyone who can identify the man or has any information regarding the robberies should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au.
