FOREST GROVE, OR (KPTV) -

An armed man was caught on camera pointing a gun at a worker and robbing stores in Forest Grove and Hillsboro.

Police were called to the Lucky Market on the corner of Sunset Drive and Willamina Avenue at 1:30 p.m. Monday.

Officers learned a man entered the store, pulled a handgun and demanded cash from the clerk. The suspect got away and was last seen running northbound.

The suspect is described as an Asian man in his 20s, wearing jeans, a long-sleeved white shirt, a black beanie hat and sunglasses.

Detectives released surveillance video of the suspect in the store Monday.

Police in Hillsboro believe the same man was responsible for another robbery Monday morning. In that case, the suspect armed with a handgun demanded money and chewing tobacco from a clerk at Cornell Mini Mart, 1910 N.E. Cornell Road, at 9:30 a.m. 

Anyone with information that could help identify the suspect is asked to contact the Forest Grove Police Department at 503-992-3260 or 503-629-0111.
