LEMOYNE, Pa. (WHTM) – Investigators say the man who robbed a Lemoyne business last week may be the same man who twice robbed another business in the borough earlier this year.

West Shore Regional police said the man they’ve been looking for in the previous robberies is a “person of interest” in Friday’s robbery at the Carriage House Boutique, in the 800 block of State Street.

A Carriage House employee told officers the man grabbed her, forced her to get her purse and took cash from it. She said he claimed to have a gun and threatened to shoot people in the store.

Police said robber threw the woman to the floor before he ran off toward Market Street. She described him as 40-50 years old, about 6 feet tall with an average build, and wearing a hooded flannel jacket and dirty jeans.

An employee was assaulted during an April 29 robbery at Mei Jian Bodycare, in the 100 block of South Third Street. The spa was first robbed on Jan.8.

Police believe the suspect is familiar with the area. All three robberies occurred on a Friday afternoon.

Anyone with information is asked to contact West Shore Regional police at 717-238-9676.
