Posted: Updated:

JONESBORO (KATV) - Police are looking for a man they say is responsible for three armed robberies in Jonesboro over a ten day period.

First, employees said a black man in a gray hoodie, dark pants and sunglasses walked into the Family Dollar at 316 E Johnson Avenue Tuesday, October 30 and robbed two cashiers at knife point. He allegedly ordered both employees to the back of the store before running away.

Three days later, a man wearing what appeared to be the same clothing with the same physical description walked into the Tobacco Superstore on Caraway Road and robbed a cashier and a customer at gunpoint. He then ordered the victims to the back of the store before running away.

Then on Thursday, November 8, security footage showed a man appearing to wear the same clothes with the same physical description robbing the Dollar General at 4003 E Highland. He took money then ordered all employees to the back of the store before running away.

Police have named 31-year-old Michael Harrison as the suspect. In a press release, they said he was homeless and has been staying in or around hotels in the area. He is believed to be armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call (870) 935-STOP. You could be eligible for a reward. If you see Harrison, call 911 immediately.
