Police in Prince George's County are searching for a man who has robbed at least four businesses in the College Park area in recent weeks.

The most recent robbery occurred Wednesday night, when the man walked into the Pizza Hut in the 9000 block of Baltimore Avenue, displayed a handgun and demanded money from the cash register, authorities said. After receiving some cash, the man fled on foot.

Investigators believe the man is also responsible for robbing the College Park Diner, in the 9200 block of Baltimore Avenue, on Feb. 21; the Jerry's Subs and Pizza, in the 10400 block of Baltimore Avenue, on Feb. 20; and The Bamboo Eater, in the 9900 block of Baltimore Avenue, on Feb. 8.

In each case, the man displayed a handgun, demanded money and fled on foot, authorities said.

The suspect is described as a black male between 20 and 30 years old. He is approximately 5' 7" tall and weighs about 150 or 160 pounds, authorities said. In each case, the suspect has worn a mask, dark jeans and latex gloves, authorities said.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call the Prince George's County Police Department's Robbery Unit at (301) 772-4905.
