Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said Thursday that the same man may be responsible for two store robberies in November and this week.

The first robbery occurred shortly before 4 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Sam’s Mart in the 2600 block of Beatties Ford Road. Then this week, the Michaels in the 4300 block of Park Road was robbed about 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Police described the robber as black, in his 40s or 50s, about 5-feet-8 and heavy set. He wore a dark toboggan, dark jacket and blue jeans.

Police on Thursday released video surveillance images from both robberies in hopes someone might recognize the man.
