FamilyChristianLogo-webPolice in Fresno, California, are looking for a man allegedly involved in four robberies in the past month, including one at the Family Christian Stores location, according to The Fresno Bee.

Sgt. Jerardo Chamalbide said the suspect used a gun to rob Family Christian on June 26. FOX News affiliate KMPH said that Family Christian staff said the man walked into the store and demanded cash.

He also hit CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid. The Rite Aid cashier was unable to open the register, so the robber left emptyhanded from that location.

The suspect reportedly used several disguises for the robberies, including a surgical mask and a black wig.

Christian Retailing could not reach Family Christian in Fresno for comment.
