Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man suspected of holdups at two pharmacies last Thursday night.

At 6:38 p.m., the man tried to rob A2Z Health Mart Pharmacy in the 1400 block of Archdale Drive, but the workers managed to leave the store before the man could get anything from them, police said.

About two hours later, the man robbed Star Bright Pharmacy in the 200 block of Mount Holly-Huntersville Road.

No injuries were reported in the incidents.

Police on Wednesday released surveillance photos of the assailant in hopes someone will recognize him.

Anyone with information about the cases or the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
