NEW YORK — An unidentified man robbed two separate gas stations in early October, police said Saturday.

The suspect then removed $400 in cash from the gas station’s cash register and fled, police said.

Four days later, at about 12:41 a.m., the same male entered another gas station on Riverdale Avenue, police said. He displayed a knife to a gas station employee, and then fled on foot after removing $120 in cash from the register.

Police are still searching for the suspect.
