NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Metro Nashville Police have been investigating five robberies, in five days, in south Nashville. Detectives believe the same man is responsible for the armed robberies.

The suspect's latest target was the Krispy Kreme on Thompson Lane when he entered the store at 7:30 a.m. Monday.

"The workers managed to run to the back. The workers did not comply with his robbery demands and he quickly fled," said Kristin Mumford, spokesperson for the Metro Police Department.

Witnesses told police the suspect left the Krispy Kreme in a dark green car, possibly a Pontiac Grand Am that had tinted windows.

Investigators said that was the suspect's second stop of the day. They believe he also attempted to rob the Mapco station 4677 Trousdale Drive.

Police said there is a pattern to this suspect's robbery spree.

"He does rob these businesses in the morning hours, as early as 1:30a.m., the latest has been around 9:30 in the morning," Mumford said.

The robbery spree started last Wednesday when he robbed the Circle K at 2200 Nolensville Pike in South Nashville.

Police also believe he is responsible for a robbery Sunday morning at the Phillips 66 station at 801 Briley Parkway, and an attempted robbery at the Discount Tobacco at 2181 Nolensville Pike.

Detectives said the robber wears the same outfit during each of the crimes.

"He does wear a white scarf, he also wears a dark ball cap, with a white insignia in the front. He tends to wear a bluish paint, possibly medical scrubs," said Mumford.

Police need the public's help to get this serial robber off the street before he becomes even more dangerous.

"He's so brazen, he enters these stores with a handgun, five in the past week, at least. We suspect he may be involved in others," Mumford said.
