Matthews police are looking for a man who robbed a Dunkin Donuts store at gunpoint Tuesday night.

Investigators say they think the man involved in Tuesday’s robbery might have been involved in a March 10 robbery at the same store.

According to police, a man entered the store, in the 9000 block of East Independence Boulevard, about 9 p.m. Tuesday. After robbing the store, the man ran off. No employees were injured.

The suspect is described as a black male, about 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was wearing red sweat pants, tan boots, and a white hooded sweatshirt with the word “Hollister” on the left sleeve. Steve Lyttle
